I'm always looking for a faster way to move around my org buffers, so
based on what you said above, I tried setting org-refile-targets like

  (setq org-refile-targets '((nil . (:maxlevel . 2))))

And then tried using C-u C-c C-w to move around.  Unfortunately, it's
not very practical for moving around since if you want to move somewhere
in the same tree you get this error:

  Cannot refile to position inside the tree or region

It would really be neat if there was a way to jump to a specific
heading, no matter how deep, by just typing a few key strokes.  Right
now, I'm using C-s to do this, but the idea of having auto-completion is

How about something like this:

1. Using a key binding, you enter a movement mode (ido, mini-buffer)

2. You select the first level heading you want (just like C-c C-w)

3. Point moves to the heading you selected

4. You are prompted for a second level heading

5. Either choose a heading, or do C-g to stay where you are

6. Continue until you get where you want to be

Does that sound interesting to anyone?  If so, I could put together
something for us to play with.
