A Link attaches a VSource to a VSink. It provides a source of current
to the VSink which depends on the relative voltage of the VSource.
Each Link provides a one-way connection; for a bi-directional connection,
use a pair of Links.
This class is appropriate for connecting Compartments together, as in a
cellular branch, or as a gap junction. For passive ion channels, simply
use a Current. For synaptic connections, use some derivative of the
Note that a Link, like any Current, has a conductance G. In typical
use as a connector between Compartments, this conductance should be set
to the average of the Gi of each Compartment. If the Compartment
parameters change in a way that affects Gi, you'll need to update the
Link's conductance manually.
