Currently if you do this:

I'd like to propose that when inline-images is on for a document,

the following link:


result in inlining, whereas:


not result in inlining, instead letting the text "Description" be a
plain text link to the image.

No, I don't think this is acceptable. Plain links are not different from bracketed links, and this difference should not be misused. What are you going to do if the path to the file name contains space characters? Then you always need the brackets around the link etc.

How about


for an inline image and


for a linked image? This looks more consistent to me. Would this break anything else?

This way we could choose by the link type, whether the image is
inlined. The reason is, most of the time I want inline images, but
sometimes I want to post a large screenshot...
