After some thinking, the reason I didn't provide any way to move those
files/directory to the new place isn't somewhat enough, because one is
still warned as long as they keep old places for old system.

So I'm considering to stop an warning if it's a symlink. is it overkill?
someone suggested though, at least I should add more words in the
message how to stop that warning (i.e. where the new place is).
