Indeed, currently this tool does not consider if the link points to a
deleted object, that is left to dbcheck, which we hope folks will run
at least every tombstone lifetime.
I could make it check the target of every link, but that is a
significant cost in an already expensive routine.
what it will catch is deleted objects and links that are at their
tombstone lifetime, and clear those out.
