How?  Instead of "pervasive linking"  add a link to a "See also"
sections of the modules for which PyMOTW in the opinion of the editor
(meaning committer who adds the link) is a valuable addition to the
official documentation.  Note that this is the same approach as we
currently take with respect to source code links.  We don't add them
pervasively, but only in cases when the source code is deemed useful
to the target audience.
