* Thanks, Nick--I have been pursuing that idea--maybe just extract the
regexp, sed/grep etc.

** But I was just thinking maybe there is a simple way to capture the pop
up "LINK: file:foo.txt balloon" as you put it--into a file or fifo.

*** Then all sorts of things could be done with it--I'm thinking maybe
OrgMode could be used with the lights out/if your blind/screen blinks
out---well, OrgMode could be partially used...one could pipe it to a
text-to-speech program for example---and/or logging where the mouse has
been in an OrgMode document.
