[Mediawiki-l] Refresh links (categories only)

Is there a way to refresh only certain "links",  like categories.

When doing "systematical" work with categories one would sometimes like 
to refresh the entire database after changes in templates etc. But, the 
categories won't "release" old category markup unless touching the 
articles. Now, updating ALL links flr several hundred thousand articles, 
or more, isn't always desired.

So here we go, Rob or Brian, a script like updateCategoryLinks.php 
[startindex] would be something... (if not already there, somehow). 

I'd be the first one to test it for you! =)
