Hi all,

I have a use case where I'd like for Org Mode to remove broken links while preserving their text when exporting. In particular, I'm exporting the same file multiple times with different sets of headlines excluded each time, and as a result I have to be careful of linking to headlines that might not be present in every export. It would be much easier if such links could simply be converted back to plain text for that export, while remaining as a link for any exports that *do* include the target headline. None of the existing settings do quite what I want. The "mark" option comes closest. I basically want "mark" but without adding any additional text around the link's text. Would the developers be willing to merge such a feature if I wrote it? I would implement it by adding another possible value to "org-export-with-broken-links", perhaps calling it something like "unlink" or "strip" (suggestions for a better name welcome). Alternatively, I could implement an option to dispatch broken link handling to an arbitrary function.
