Ellen, it was pretty much a joke when I said I'd sometimes rather use
LINKAGE to avoid having to make so many citations. However I have come
across the situation where a journal, e.g. for a letter or short report,
severely restricts the total number of citations. I also sometimes 
slightly resent having to do two citations for FASTLINK when so far as I
recall the second paper describes improvements which only bring minor
advantages and/or only in certain situations. With LINKAGE I only cite
one reference, even though strictly speaking one should use one for
LINKMAP and one for MLINK. I assume that the LINKAGE authors are less
concerned with how many citations they get nowadays.
