Perhaps an assert instead of the if, so people can at least find the
problem when they make that mistake?  I'm not sure how this sort of
thing is usually handled in Java...

FWIW, it probably doesn't help that Factor.newLink(Element) doesn't
actually have any javadoc, so there's no way for anyone to know that
it adds the link to the element unless they've read the source.
