org-insert-todo-heading - it just happens to do special things in
special cases. At the end of a plain list item or a checkbox item, it
calls (org-insert-item 'checkbox) instead of inserting a todo heading.

What does it do? And don't forget to provide version information
both for org-mode and for emacs.

I think this would be fairly easy to implement and there are many ways
to do it, but:

I have seen requests like this before and I must admit I don't understand
why this would be useful. So this is is a useless rant from your point of
view, but maybe you could explain: what is the use of this? If you want to
be able to get to all of the files/subdirectories of the directory, why not
add a single link to the top-level directory in your org file and then use
the facilities of dired from there? Why is it important to have links to all
the files?
