Wow, there is so much stuff in Cocoon and things that
we do not even know are there.

I do not have time to investigate LinkStatusGenerator.
If someone else does, then that would be excellent.

I do have time to schedule LinkAlarm now and then, and to
follow up on results. So until the LinkStatusGenerator is
working, i will continue with LinkAlarm. Even then, it may
be appropriate to still do the occasional run.

No problem. I do see what you mean.
