Comment (by MichaelH):

 After installing link_categories.4.diff and doing a install.php;

 1.  Deleting a Link Category assigns Links to the "Uncategorized" Category
 rather than default "Blogroll".  Add a new Link Category (Mylinkcat), edit
 one of the existing Links and check both Blogroll and Mylinkcat and save
 it.  Then delete the Mylinkcat Category.  Table wp_link2cat shows the
 wrong Category for that link.  Not to sure link_count in wp_categories is
 getting updated correctly there either.

 2. When trying to delete a Category in Manage->Categories, where that
 Category is not assigned to any Posts, but is assigned to a Link, it
 displays the message "Processing Data...".  This is probably what I saw
 last night when I descibed it as "hanging".  It should display a message
 saying "You can't delete this Category because it is assigned to one or
 more Links."  The same thing happens in Links->Link Categories when you
 delete a Category that is not assigned to any Links but is assigned to
 Posts.  Or course, there is the possiblility that if you delete a Category
 in either place, both the Posts and the Links should be assigned their
 corresponding "default" Category, but in that case the warning message
 should note that both Posts AND Links will be assigned their respective
 default Category.

 3. You should not be allowed to delete a Category in Links->Link
 Categories when it is used as the "default" Category for Posts even though
 it is not assigned to any Posts.  This probably is working okay, but again
 when trying to delete a Category in this scenario it just displays the
 "Processing Data..." data message.  Is a different message warranted
 saying that Category is designated as a "default" Category on the
 Options->Writing page?

 4. Still wonder how people with many Categories are going to react to
 seeing what they consider Link Categories when writing Posts?

 5. While digging in this, is it proper to consider assigning Categories to
