Got it.

Is the dependency on Org really necessary?
Seems pretty heavyweight for just the features
that orglink.el provides (which is similar to
what linkd.el provides).

I can understand, for example, having orglink.el
do more, i.e., optionally, if Org is loaded, but
is a hard-require really needed for the basic
behavior?  Maybe consider conditionalizing some
behavior on (featurep 'org)?

(Just a naive suggestion, without looking at the code.)
