 How could a theme author tell whether there's a link or not? Anything that
 matches on the returned text is going to run into problems when you're
 running on a translated WordPress.

 Your patch seems to be a lot of work to fix a more general issue in a
 specific place to achieve just one task. Could we simply add a $nolink
 (default to empty) parameter to adjacent_post_link() and have that value
 returned later in the function by
 if ( !$post )
                 return $nolink;
