I see that there are custom links for each section, which must be a bit more of a challenge to define and maintain than relying upon the natural language links that MediaWiki makes for us already.  I imagine there is a more valuable reason to do it this way?  FWIW, I <3 the idea of having the link in the first place, very useful.  I just reckon it would be easier and more consistent to use the existing link tools? --[[User:Quaid|Quaid]] 17:58, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
