No, no -- I'm saying that I don't think it's worth linking to a
specific snippet.  As long as people are directed to the Foo
snippet list, that's all we need.  The extra complication isn't
worth it.

Counter-arguments welcome for the next three or four days.  :)

Sure.  I'd also like the doctitle instead of filename in the Foo
Snippets lists.

Sorry, why do we need a CMD?  We should use the same formatting
for all of them, so an argument-less command like [doctitle]
should be sufficient.

I have no particular feelings about what that formatting should
be, other than "less visible than whatever is produced by
@snippets".  :)   ... and recall that "whatever is produced by
@snippets" is still an uncertain quantity.

BTW, I'm updating the snippets right now (including all our
hacks), so don't worry about doing it yourself.
