What is the dbus thing supposed to do? Would it be ok if it happened more than once? Why is it important it happen on creation of the link? Any consequence of a typo? What should happen when you edit a link?

I am not aware of a link creation hook. They are recognized through font lock by a regular _expression_.

I have been thinking about a project I would like to do to add some custom semantic markup to an org-mode. I think that links may be the best way to do this. Looking at this page:


I am wondering if there is a way to have a hook that gets called on link creation. E.g., if I type stevejb:my_word. I would like to immediately have "stevejb:my_word" sent on dbus or something like that.

Is there existing infrastructure for this? Is this the right approach?
