Description David Kilzer (:ddkilzer) 2016-09-06 12:57:00 PDT
Since MobileCoreServices.framework does not depend on WebCore.framework, and there is no longer a penalty for linking frameworks (until a symbol is used), we can get rid of the eight places where MobileCoreServices.framework is soft-linked in WebCore for iOS (one of which isn't even used any longer).

"hard link" is a term of art that normally means the thing the "ln" command creates

So I would have used different wording here.
