[ELPA] New package: org-real

I would like to propose that org-real be added to ELPA.

Org real allows you to keep track of real things as org-mode links.  A
real link looks like this: real://mouth/nose?rel=below .  Following a
real link pops up a boxy.el diagram which shows where the thing is.  The
command org-real-world will combine all real links in the current buffer
and display it as a boxy.el diagram.

You can use it to map a physical filing system to your org-mode workflow
or sprinkle real links throughout an existing org file to create a
alternate hierarchy to navigate with org-real-world.


I have some implementation questions for anyone willing to take a look.


In order to support editing existing real links with the org-real custom
completion mechanism, I temporarily advise read-string, during the
org-insert-link process, to look out for real links.

In that same section, I shadow org-link-make-description-function in
order to suggest a description if both the existing description and
org-link-make-description-function are unset.

I call org-real-apply after inserting a link to check that the new link
does not conflict with any other real link in the buffer, if it is real.


The function org-link-make-string is not available in Emacs 26, so I've
copied the implementation from Emacs 27 for backwards compatibility.


I've copied the args construction from ispell-start-process.

I assume copying existing Emacs code is OK, I just wanted to be sure and
see if I needed any attribution.
