In the August release, should collection links support PLaneT versions 
(whether coming from PLaneT server or PLaneT dev links)?  (I don't know 
the answer; I don't know the philosophy of how these links are supposed 
to fit with PLaneT.)

Regarding the case in general, occasionally it seems to me like there is 
a dogfood issue there.  Which is why I jump on any additional precedent 
for using Git instead of PLaneT -- jump like a bloodthirsty Shih Tzu.
