I'm trying org-index, and I let the assistant build the table for me. At
the end of the set, this error occurred:

| Saved org-index-id '50E94CE9-06B3-452E-96B6-FA47AA08B9D6' to 
| let: No catch for tag: created-new-index, nil

Is this problematic?

Here are a few notes I'm taking as I'm playing with it.

First, the table seems to be different from the one on worg. Here are
the columns I have:

  |     |      |                  |         |               | comment   |
  | ref | link | created          | count;s | last-accessed | ;c        |
  |     | <4>  |                  |         |               |           |

I guess "comment" includes Type, description, and Keywords? Or can I
extend this table as I see fit?

Second, I don't see how to update a link in a table so that it points
somewhere else. Should I just copy the "Property" drawer to the new place?

Also, I noticed it's impossible to create a link to a file. If a file
does not have any org entry, then org-index link will fail with "Before
first headline at position 35591 in buffer ...". I can go around this by
creating an headline, but then I cannot use saveplace or something like
that to put me in the same place in the file (typically at the very end
of a long data table, to input more data).

Finally, what is the workflow to create a new reference? The way I do it
is "link" from the place to link, then call "+fill" in the table. Is
there a simpler way (that would do both in one stroke)?
