I use custom Org link types when editing novels or completing my own
novel translations, linking to various editing "issues", and displaying
them in a variety of ways. As Stefan notes, the need to handle multiple
interconnected changes isn't specific to code. Perhaps there could be
custom org link types that perform xref searches, or perform more
complex semantic searches like "all instances of function `foo' that
still use the old calling convention" and display using occur.
