Good idea. User should be able to attach just any kind of "thing" to a
note as that is how life really is, it is related to other things. But
indexing and finding things in Org is IMHO the main problem and one
very solvable problems as Org already offers parsers of the
structure. I would then parse over all Org files, all of its
attributes, tags, properties, time stamps, just anything, and would
import it into database, create a full text search and let the
database give me all the headings and anything that is located on the
file system.
