Actually, this is why John proposed `org-occur-in-agenda-files'.

Mhh... I thought a registry would be more efficient, because you don't
have to fetch for all the links in all agenda files before finding those
pointing to your location. But perhaps maintaining the registry file has
it own cost. I will think more carefully about this and let you know.

Agreed. The most common pattern would be to match the link exactly and
to be more liberal about the description. I implemented such a "fuzzy"
matching for planner-registry, and I was quite happy with that.

One caveat though: file links contain context. Obviously, we don't want
to be only able to find such links if the point is *exactly* where the
context was defined from. So I suggest we get rid of the context when
storing a link to the registry.  Of course, not having a registry file
would help here :)

Last but not least: plain links are currently not stored. Plain links
are also links in bracket links, so this might be confusing when fishing
for all links in the buffer.

Okay. I will try to implement some kind of agenda view for headlines
containing a link to the current location. More on this later.

Being able to search for several location would also be neat. Imagine:
you want to fetch all TODOs pointing to your bbdb buffer or/and your w3m
buffer or/and your Gnus summary buffer.

Possible and *very* interesting!  Thanks for the input.
