Uhm, why not just save a backup of the list when something is going to
removed...kind of like the way the gdb logs are saved in the
make it by date instead of number tho. Like, if the script is run once a
you could do "12-27-00.backup"...and if you notice anything going wrong
can just mv the backup into the working(current) version. This way you
get everything you want 1) auto-magic deleting of outdated links and
2) security for your poor paranoid soul :)

Don't know really, this isn't exactly my specialty or anything(actually
FAR from my specialty ;) ). But it popped into my head so I figured i'd
to help if at all remotely possible.
