Heh, you read my mind.  Whenever you find the time, go ahead with the UI 
improvements, much appreciated.

I have a local half baked implementation of a command line option which can be 
used to exclude links that match a given regexp from being checked; I'm going 
to finish that and after it (and the UI changes above) I think it's 4.4 time.

Yeah, beats me too.  When I initially uploaded it to CPAN, it did grok it 
and "install W3C-LinkChecker" (or at least something like that) worked.  
Something must have changed so it no longer works.  I can have a look, but 
it's somewhat hard to test...
