I get the general effect using Emacs Helm with some additional commands as
part of the helm definitions. My original idea was from Sacha Chua (
) but I didn't implement her stuff as written (in part I didn't
conceptually merge capture/create with goto/refile/clock as she did). I
went for simpler. I can call my mlm/helm-org-agenda-files-headings
with (kbd "C-x c o"), use Helm completion to find the right headline, and
then Goto, Refile current heading to, Clock In, Clock In and Goto, or
Insert Link
