Many websites now break their articles into many pages. These pages are usually linked by the <link rel="next"> or <link rel="prev"> tags, as well as traditional <a href> tags.

If the plucker spider hits one of these pages, it should optionally follow the <link rels> to get the rest of the article. Probably this should be limited to "prev" and "next" relations.  It should do this regardless of any depth settings - in other words the collection of linked pages should count as a single page as far as the spider is concerned.
