[PLUG] Link Checker

I've been looking at link checkers, and while the is pretty thorough, it is slow and the output doesn't lend itself readily to spreadsheet analysis.

I have a large (thousands of documents) website that I'm trying to generate a broken links report for.

     Links outside the site being checked should be verified but not followed any further.

     Links inside the site should be followed all the way.

     Since in some links are in _javascript_ it would be nice to follow links within _javascript_.

     There are a lot of vanity urls in place, which means most redirects are not errors, but we should have a report of redirects to review them.

     There is a lot of removed content, a seperate report of this would be nice, but we're not going to clean thousands of dead links out of pages.

Beyond what we need, an OSI compliant licensed product would be preferred, but I wouldn't rule out paying for a tool.
