I'm not sure that's an accurate characterization. SysCrusher hasn't had
a chance to work on the administrative screen for bulk link maint. work,
but the module has been good to go under 4.7 for months now. It has a
robust API, very solid views integration, and is easy to integrate with.
The biggest problem is that 1) its description has an outdated warning,
and 2) it hasn't been officially branched. That latter problem is
definitely a big one, but I'd really suggest anyone considering
implementing a links management system consider links.module and
links.inc as their starting point.
Obviously, some would prefer a smaller focused all in one solution. :)
No problem with that. But the links package itself is definitely not in

Links not being actively driven forward and actually completed has made
"competing" solutions appear. It's unfortunate, but it happens. 

There is also Easylinks: http://drupal.org/project/easylinks

Also, CCKs URL field plus Views lets people build flexible links
