sorry just getting caught up on lists after Christmas (yeah, I know).

This may not work right now, the Links block location in the XML has  
to move into an Extension block at the end of the application  
definition.  I'm not sure the parsing code has been updated to reflect  
this necessity ... I've made a note of it, though, and will try to  
include it in a future update.
