Well, the short answer is it doesn't  Even if you set internal links to 
be ignored they are still calculated in the OPIC scoring and this 
negatively affects search relevancy.  The way to handle this is to set 
the variable to 0.0.  This way only external 
links are counted in OPIC.

I will post a wiki entry about this process soon.
