Hi org-mode developers,

it would be nice if there was a facility to wash (= shorten) org
link descriptions.  From the users perspective this could be a
list of regular expressions with corresponding short forms.

Use case:

I want to automatically shorten org link descriptions,
especially if linking to emails.  Some of this emails are from a
request tracker and have extraordinary long From: and Subject:
suffixes which add up to 49 characters in the link description.
I would like to radically shorten this boilerplate.

Even with "normal" To: and Subject:, the default formatting of
such links prefixes the correspondents name with "from " or "to ".
While it's fine with me to distinguish emails from me from
emails to emails to me, I would not need the "from ").

Ciao; Gregor
