We basically did this in the company I work for, where we use JSPWiki as
a base for our UI. We ran into problems with the reference manager
taking up a *very* long time at wiki startup, so we switched over to
using a SQL database for page storage and storing the links between
pages in the database, thus eliminating the "recreate the link
information at every startup" problem.

The problems we've had with this approach have been mostly on the "how
to keep the link information correct", so that's probably something you
want to keep in mind.
