I would just like to point out that this idea could be generalised to any file
type that contains data you would like to categorise on / query by. For instance
emails per sender, any file type with some kind of tags or keyword support, or
even just group by file name extension.

The program could call out to a separate utility that writes on stdout a list
of link names to create for a given file, or the code could be organised so that
adding file formats is easy and config.{h,mk} determines which one(s) to use.
