 > The link manager has been disabled by default since 3.5. I don't think
 we should further encourage its usage by moving these functions around.

 I agree with this.

 Replying to [comment:3 JPry]:
 > That is certainly true, but there still seems to be a good number of
 people using the Link Manager. According to the
 [https://wordpress.org/plugins/link-manager/ Link Manager Plugin page],
 there are 100,000+ installs using that plugin to enable the Link Manager.

 The original intention was to move more functionality from core into that
 plugin long-term, although that's not yet happened.
