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 -- -... --- .-. . -.. ..--.. ...-.-
