Hi Carsten,

I just meant that there are 3 path completion entry points
(remember, which can also use refile; refile; and goto), and
they are similar, but are specified differently
(e.g. maxlevel variable in goto and alist in refile).  So,
maybe there is a way to make the syntax for specifying them
consistent for new users.

Perhaps goto can use refile's path selection subsystem.
That allows basename flex matching (by turning off
org-refile-use-outline-path, useful for me as an interim workaround for ido
bugs) and other stuff like specifying the list of files to
search.

By the way, if you type "?" a few times using ido, it will
show a completions buffer.  But here's the interesting part:
that showed one path, which was "mytodo//" plus the full
path name of the file -- not the outline path.  M might
be another clue?
