Indeed, I do use org-refile-use-outline-path 'file.  However, I have a
directory specified for my org-agenda-files.  ("~/org-mode")  Therefore
I'll need to
do something a bit different.

It appears that your solution creates "targets" which is the targets list
of course, and
then it creates "agenda-files" which goes through org-agenda-files and
finds all the filenames
in org-agenda files.

It then mutates "targets", and removes any entry which is a filename from

Since my org-agenda-files is simply ("~/org-mode/") none of the entries

Hmmm, let me ask:  Why not simply go through targets and remove any entry
whose value is
a simple filename?  Why search org-agenda-files first?  This function also
assumes that the org-refile-targets
always comes from org-agenda-files.

I'll play with your function and see what I can get -- thank you for the
