Possibly with a lot of code hacking to re-increment your IDs in your LINKS database (links.db), however, and this is a big however, if you are using any sort of external user script, like rate it, affiliate search form, etc., then your users will be a bit pissed when they find out that their IDs have changed.

Also, even if you are using internal user options, like rate it, jump, etc., then the same problem will occur.
