I have a file, suggestions.org, in directory ~/x/y/z/top/child/ that
contains many images. These are included by means of links such as
Now, I have a parent file in top/, manual.org, and I want to #+include
Unfortunately, this breaks all the figure links in suggestions.org,
because "." is interpreted as top/ and not top/child/.
Even more unfortunately, this is a shared document, and a number of
people are going to check it out from a source code repository
(subversion in this case). This means that I cannot specify the images as
because I cannot force my co-authors to check out the top/ to ~/x/y/z.
Indeed, I cannot even force my co-authors to have directories x/ x/y or
So what is needed, I believe is some way of indicating that these
relative links should be resolved at *include* time, rather than later.
