+ 0905 [toshirok yb3] if we accept POD way, do we regard "((<foo>))" as reference to other
  0906 [matz netlab.] Either OK.  I think "((<foo>))" can be reserved for in-file reference.
  + 0907 [hiwada kuee.] How do you think about the case in which Headlines make conflinct.

^ local / dynamic variables
0877 [decoux moulo] This is probably a stupid question, but why in a block a variable is not
