Hi Lennart,

(I'm copying the Orgmode mailing list because it helps to get people's
opinion on such ideas...)

Org already lets you create links from nearly anywhere in Emacs. 

What would such a minor mode do?

`org-store-link' can handle HTML and elisp files okay.

You can of course insert links in Org-mode files.  Is your idea about
inserting links outside of Org-mode files?  Can you give an example?

I think I need more background on what are the main features of
linkd.el and mlinks.el -- and what are the ones you miss in Org...  

Thanks for further clarifications :)
