Ville,

Thanks a lot for this fast patch. Do you have an idea of the things left
to clear and clean before we can push a 4.4 release? I haven't had a lot
of bandwidth for checklink in the past few weeks but I don't recall
there was much in the way of a release.

It may also be worth looking again at where the project is heading.
Checklink is now a venerable service, working well, and it seems from
the feedback I receive now and then that the only issue is that its good
behavior (following robots.txt and waiting a second between requests) is
annoying in an age of faster web servers. It may be worth looking at
whether to trigger the robotUA only in recursive mode, or whether we
want to plug in a faster ajax interface (not for the recursive mode),
etc.
