I'm not sure what sort of documentation you have in mind? What should
I add?

> I have realized that even better option would be using map-do.

Agreed. Should be in the current version.

With regard to Max's comments:

> I am in doubts concerning "default-description" as the parameter
> name. I would consider either more specific "insert-description"

Having read your thoughts, I agree. I've converted the patch to use
"insert-description" where-ever relevant.

I had the same thought. I doesn't work though. `copy-tree' and
`copy-sequence' only make shallow copies of each element in a
sequence. `org-link-set-parameters' then uses side effects to alter
the `org-link-parameters', so these changes are propagated to the
copy. This means the values in the copy and the real
`org-link-parameters' are always the same, and so we can't use the
copy to store the original values (which is what we need it to do).

> In addition, `declare' form should be added to `defmacro' to specify
> which argument is considered as its body.

I have never used `declare' before. I looked it up in the Elisp manual
and read the docstring, but I couldn't understand how it specifies
which argument is considered the body. I'm also not aware of what this
does/why this is useful? (not a criticism, I just haven't learned this
yet).

This is a good idea -- done.

This isn't possible, because that's a clause in a `let' call, which is
itself inside a `cond' clause, and the `CONDITION' of that clause uses
`type', so it has to be defined at a higher level.

It's right that `desc' is initialized from current link description
when point is withing an existing link.

Previously, `desc' was only used when
`org-link-make-description-function' was nil. This seems to me a very
odd behaviour: preserve the current link description, but only when
`org-link-make-description-function' is nil. Especially considering
that `org-insert-link' is also used for editing already-existing
links. So in the original version, in some situations,
`org-link-make-description-function' had a higher priority than
`desc', which seems wrong.

Thanks,

Hugo

Subject: [PATCH] ol.el: add description format parameter to
 org-link-parameters

* ol.el (org-link-parameters): Add parameter `:insert-description', a
string or a function.
* (org-insert-link): If no description is provided (pre-existing or as
an argument), next option is to use the `:insert-description' (if
non-nil) parameter to generate one.

Default descriptions are predictable within a link type, but because
link types are quite diverse, are NOT predictable across many types.
A type-parameter is thus a good place to store information on the
default description.
