> When I started writing my email I had been planning to add an option #3, a link_meta field. After completing the email I had changed my mind and decided a wp_linkmeta table a.k.a. option #2 would probably be the best. Thanks for confirming my decision to use a wp_linkmeta table, that is assuming I don't end up using zeList directly.

#3 is good if you have very few values (like 1 to 3 metas)
and even in this case, #2 won't be much more work.
in link_meta, I store : link_updated, link_published, pagerank, and
some custom metas (like zipcode).

as for using zeList, please take it for a test drive, I feel it may
fill your specs quite closely. I'm available for further
doc/explanation on the plugin.
