Unfortunately absolutely true.

It might have been discussed before, but I still have this thought anyway:
Isn't it possible to use our nice crawling feature of Cocoon to check
each link? So, basically we could start Cocoon as a servlet, start the
crawler and the crawler reports every link (URI) that doesn't produce
a valid response (throws an exception). I'm not sure, but that should
only be a bunch of lines and would imho help a little bit.
