Hi Francois,

Your Org in elisp solution allows limited Org functionality in Elisp
and other files.  You cannot put those files in the agenda, or do many
other things that you can do with agenda files.  The entries are not
in an Org context.  They are in an external file.

What I am suggesting as a possible alternative in some cases, is to
have all of your notes about the elisp file in your ordinary Org
agenda files.  However, this is not Babel.

Instead, it is a bidirectional Org<->non-Org link.  A command in the
external file will find the nearest bidirectional link, then take you
to its dual entry in your Org files.  And a command in Org will take
you to the place in elisp that points to that entry.

So in elisp you will have:

;;; $[bidir da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709]

And in your Org file you will have:

* my notes on that part of elisp
:ID: da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709

Here are my notes.


This will allow you to use the full power of Org without tangling.
