Perhaps I am confused, but have you tried radio targets?

Hey all!

I used to be an avid user of WikiDPad, and I loved the way it
automatically (or manually, using [ ]) created links and files to
these links (CamelCase) for me. The way it provided a visual tree of
the wiki was also pretty cool.

This was awesome for reference kind of data, to build your own
knowledge base. I've been trying to test different approaches with
org, but none of them work as smoothly as it worked for me when using

I divide reference data in two main categories: Dynamic and Static.
Static are the notes and stuff that youl want to keep somewhere and
that you'll eventually refer to later. Dynamic are the kind of that
you'll be editing often, but does not fit in any other category
GTD-wise. It is reference, you want to keep it somewhere, not take
action on it per se (other than editing it), but you want to expand
and modify it often.

How difficult would it be to implement a small system that would index
the files of directory, get the names (camel-case) and automatically
link to these names if written on an org buffer? My elisp skills are
very weak as of now.

I know some of you might list a number of points against implementing
this, but I really loved the way Wikdpad created links on the fly.
