Yeah, I agree the links are useful on-line, when using QRG as an index
(I think the new column is great), and of course they're a total waste
of space in the printed version.  This seems like a perfect example of
when it's useful to have the print version have certain bits (the 4th
column) removed.

Honestly, trying on my user hat, I'd also want columns for exactly the
syntaxes I use.  If I were a Manchester Syntax user, I'd want a column
for that; and if I never touched RDF triples, I wouldn't want that
column.    /me hears lots of groans.....
