I'm not sure I follow. What do you mean by a link group being
`nonexisting' ? In my view a link group exists iff there is any
alternative providing it, but thus it can only be said to exist at a
particular time on a particular system.
Which particular operations does dictionaries-common do that you are
going to make fail ?
