Hi, @Nicolas, will you release a method to update all existing Org file links?
(Sorry for second time asking this, you have not mentioned it, so I asked again,
it's important for me, or people who want to upgrade to new link syntax).

I don't know which special escaped characters need to be converted.

If someone already has command to do this. Can you share it?

I'm still using a separate local branch which before this commit, so all my Org
file links still can work temporarily.
