Perhaps internally Cocoon is now appending a
filename extension, which confuses the linkgatherer.
I don't even know if "confirm-extensions" does that.
One should look at the Cocoon code.

I think that is tangential.

My experiment is with our site-author docs. It has
stacks of links that are normally processed.

All okay in 'forrest run' mode because this is the
Cocoon configuration cli.xconf, i.e. command-line
i.e. 'forrest site'
