Hi Dale,

thanks for the extra information.

Seems to me that there are really two issues here. One is the idea you point out with the bugzilla example. I would like to call this "link abbreviations". I like the idea and think it could be used in many ways. It might also be useful to allow
setting such abbreviations on a per-file base with lines like

#+LINKABBREV: Bugzilla "";

The second issue you are mentioning is an extensible link system like muse has it, where new link types like gnus, vm and other can be defined and hooked into the the system. The muse system is of an admirable generality, but so far I have chosen not to follow the same road, because (at least in planner, I don't know about muse itself) the generality forces you to put a long list of require statements into .emacs before the system will function properly even for the standard cases most people need. A system which just has all important types built-in and active seems more user-frienly (though less hacker-friendly) to me.

Sure.  I'm acually abusing interwiki links.  In my planner files, I
can quicky use "Bugzilla::1234" as a link to bug number 1234.  Planner
sees that as an interwiki link (the ::) .  Pressing return over the
link while in planner or following the link in the published html
actually goes to

I *could* use something like
[[][Bug# 1234]], but
that's a lot to type in.  Hmm.  It wouldn't be too hard to whip up
some elist that generates a link like that.

What I'm really asking is a way to extend the current list of link
types (gnus:, file:, vm:, etc.) with some user-defined types.

I've been trying out org-mode instead of planner-el for a few weeks
now.  I like it.  However, there are a few things I miss.  One is
how easy it was to ad my own hyperlink types.  This was all I
needed to add Bugzilla::<number> links:

(setq muse-wiki-interwiki-alist
      '(("Bugzilla" . "";)))
