Related to my earlier question about links -- the default of org-url-hexify-p 
is true, which has the side effect for naïve users that links to a subtree in a 
different file can no longer open the file automagically.

I guess there's a good reason to do that, but it threw me for a loop. (Actually 
I kind of guessed that it might happen, since I didn't see anywhere that the 
connections between the hashes and the target files were persisted, but trusted 
that org might have some magic and handle it gracefully, since it handles 
everything else gracefully :-p )

Just a thought. Not sure if it's worth changing, but it's a bit of a 
discrepancy, in that most of org-mode follows the principle of least surprise 
quite well but this does not: I store and insert a link, and it might not work 
after closing Emacs.
