    I'm looking forward to the results. Some characteristics
    to look for:
      * Automatable
         --Ability to start up a script and let it crank
      * Links to Internal Addresses
         --Most, in checking href="x#foo" consider it a "success"
            if file x exists. They never verify that the "foo" anchor
      * Exception Reporting
         --Surprisingly, some apps feel compelled you about every link that
            succeeds, as well as those that fails. Makes it hard to
            to find the real problems.
