It does work, sort of.  My function is of the form:

    if path matches regexp
        return complicated link construction
        return "[[file:" + path + "]]"

What happens is that when called with the expanded %F the matching
always fails so the "else" branch is always taken.  When called from
evaluated lisp code (e.g. (linkify "foo/bar")), the function works

Doh!  Most ML's have the reply-to set to default to the list.  I
didn't check to TO; I'd intended my reply to go to the ML as well.

I require something more complex.  Our code repository has a pretty
nifty web interface with a lot of very useful features.  What I'm
trying to do is arrange that if the file that I was working on when I
created the note is from the source repository, I create a link to the
web interface's rendition of the file, rather than to the file on the
file system.  If the file isn't from the code repository then I just
create an ordinary file link.
