Hi Ville, all,

Progress on, and plans about "ack!" aside, we have not yet decided  
what to do with the current link checker, and its rather broken  
parallel support.

I am not sure I'd want to keep following the parallel RobotUA route,  
in the light of the issues we've found in this module, as well as the  
limited performance improvements. At least for now. I would like,  
however, to make a few changes to the link checker, since at least as  
a module/command-line tool it is still very useful.

Among our options would be to:
- revert all parallelUA coding (but keep an archive somewhere of how  
we would use it)
- put it in a branch (with the obvious risk that the branck will just  
rot and die)
- ??

What do you think?
