linkcategories is a deprecated table.  Ryan was keeping it around  
(i.e. not deleting it altogether) as a contingency plan... so we  
could abort the whole "shared categories" thing if we wanted.

It was removed [1] from the list of "pre-checked" tables in the  
backup plugin intentionally.  In 2.1, it's just deadweight.
