I'm not going to comment on Linking models right now. there's just too much there
for me to deal with right now, though I must say that the conversation
has been useful

No. Among other things, tickets of different types may eventially have different 
attributes and different UI associated with them

While I agree that all ticket manipulation must be possible from the CLI,
the RT core and associated actions will be written in perl. At least for 2.x.

I'd like to hold off on the advanced state change on link manipulation stuff
for now, as if we go that route, I'm afraid we'll never get it out.

This is scary.  I'm imagining tracerouting you and seeing links like "Route
84" and "Route 9, Exit 14".  Obviously, this is illness induced.
