As an automated way of counting links, I dumped the HTML page source for 
the above page from Safari to BBEdit, and did a Find and Replace All on 
all instances of "href", which told me it made 123 changes.

But have you actually looked at those 7 "New in 6" pages?  My God!  They 
contain no real actual information describing the new capabilities, just 
endless lists of further links -- and between them they must contain 
_thousands_ of links (I'm not about to attempt counting them).
