Ya, but there needs to be a way to differentiate in between links
that (may) work, and those that are known to be outdated.
And i think it was you who pointed out an example where the
mechanism of using <LINK> for (possibly) working links, and LINK
for known-not-to-work ones was already used in the current
database - and iirc there were some more of those.

If you promise not to laugh..
The funny thing is that i've tried to use git(1)s send-email (i do
have a stale tool around that offers a mode which echoes all the
necessary parameters for this very case), but had to realize that
i've overwritten a locally patched git-send-email when i've
updated git last so that the installed version failed with

  die "Unable to initialize SMTP properly. Check config and use --smtp-debug. "

And i was too tired to dig into this.
Oth i'm even lucky since i'm personally so sick of '[PATCH]'
subjects all around that the handmade version fits better to me
and i.
