In-Reply-To: <4FBDF50D-609C-4816-952C-54A83854F528@gmail.com> (Carsten Dominik's message of "Sat, 16 May 2009 19:39:35 +0200")

Following on from this, I'd like to suggest that, while it is being
edited, the source code is removed from the org buffer, to avoid
concurrency problems. I just had a go at that -- the patch below
replaces the source code with a work-in-progress message that contains
a link to the edit buffer.

That brought up a couple of related questions:

1. Is there a dedicated format for an org-link to an emacs buffer? (I
   used an elisp: link)

2. Now I'm going to be confusing. Despite me using a link inside a code
   block in that, I had previously wondered about how appropriate it is
   that org conducts its special formatting operations inside source
   code blocks. E.g. in R code, x[[3]] means the 3rd element of list
   x. But that gets magically formatted by org as a link, which looks
   weird. Do we think that the current behaviour is desirable? If not,
   should org be prevented from formatting stuff in literal blocks, or
   is it too inefficient or messy to implement that? (If it were
   changed, the work-in-progress message could go outside the block.)
