What makes this especially bad is that these links (or buttons, if you prefer)
are not indicated as such. The only way to know that there is a link present is
to use mouseover, because there is no highlighting except for `mouse-face'.

This means that you can easily click mouse-1 to move the cursor somewhere and
end up accidentally following a link, even if you have
`mouse-1-click-follows-link' = nil. 

This is a UI no-no.
