It's a good idea. Go ahead and add it to the hammer utility.
Maybe call it 'hammer snapshot <softlink-directory> [<filesystem>]'
(where the filesystem need only be specified if the softlink
directory is not in the desired filesystem).
Is there an easy way to determine the filesystem a path belongs to?
I'd suggest an extension:
hammer snapshot /hammer/softlinks # => /hammer/softlinks/<transid>
hammer snapshot /hammer/softlinks/soft1 # => name snapshot "soft1"
