I've been working on making this easier.  The rewrite functionality has
moved into a WP_Rewrite class which is globally instantiated as
$wp_rewrite.  Using some hooks I just committed, the attached plugin is
possible.  You can try it by going to /links/link-category-name/
or /index.php/links/link-category-name/.  Visit the Permalink options
page first to get the new rules into your .htaccess.  Of course, don't
do this on a production weblog.  Testbeds only.  This is very bleeding

Anyway, the plugin directs /links/... requests to wp-links-opml.php,
passing along a link category name.  wp-links-opml.php doesn't currently
do anything with the category name, so you're not going to get anything
useful.  But there is the *potential* for usefulness.  ;-)

Plugin attached.  I included some comments that attempt to provide some
explanation of what's going on.
