Oops ... I see I was careless (and incorrect) with my references to  
the weblink module. I was actually referring to the  
links_weblink.module that is part of the new Links Package. I  
actually never used the old weblinks.module at all.

So my suggestion still stands, to move the filtering functionality  
out of the links_weblink.module so that it can be used without  
enabling the weblink node type.

Sorry for the confusion,
