[O] Using a simpler link syntax in org-mode?

I'd like to have links with the syntax [[foo bar]] go to files with the name 
foo bar.org. This would make using org-mode much more like using a personal 
local wiki.

Is this possible without breaking existing link functionality? I'd also 
ideally still be able to export to html, etc. with standard org-mode tools.

The best I've been able to do is something like: 
(setq org-link-abbrev-alist '(("o" . "file:%s.org")))

This lets me use the syntax [[o:foo bar]], but that is more verbose, and 
looks distractingly ugly inline. 
For example: The quick brown o:fox jumps over the o:lazy_dog. 
And `[[o:foo bar][foo bar]]` is even 
more verbose to type and edit (though it reads fine in org modde).

FYI, I was asked to crosspost this from stackoverflow at 
(I waited several weeks with no answer; I hope that is appropriate)
