This looks impressive, and is *similar* to the effect I am going for, but
what I am looking at is intercepting the `org-insert-link` functionality
(or replacing it) with the ability to insert a link from the global
filter-and-select interface via ivy for `org-refile`. So, in other words,
global access to the (say 3 levels down) headings and files available
through the ivy interface (which further allows me to filter that down).

This would give me the ability to arbitrarily add links across all files
(and particularly handy with org-contact for adding in links in cal entries
for meetings).  Since the viy interface seems to work fine for refiling
tasks (except for initial load of refile targets), it seems it'd be
sufficiently performant.
