Hyperlink support?

It looks like you have (some?) support for Org Modes's hyperlinks, but I don't see documentation for how far that goes.  In particular, I make use of Hyperlinks for creating a simple Contact database that doesn't require any special extras (like an SQLite DB).  I simply make an Org file with an outline of all my contacts where each contact has a header (the name of the person), some descriptive text about (perhaps a list of information), and a CUSTOM-ID property.  I can then use hyperlinks in my other files to reference the contact like so:

 [[][Contact Name]]

This shows up as a link in Beorg, but clicking on the link takes me to the file, but not directly to the contact.

Can this be added to Beorg?

I'll take a look at this.

Bumping this...

This is in my to-be-looked-at-soon list. I'm hoping to have this sorted out once the release I delayed from before Christmas has gone out.

p.s. Note that, if you implement click on a hyperlink in Beorg, keep a stack of where you came from and a pop command to take you back where you were.  In my use case above, I might click on the contact link, cut/copy some information, then backtrack to paste it where I was.

Yes, any screens shown when you click a link will be stacked so you can easily backtrack and not get lost in your workflow.

Also, if beorg is planning on implementing org links, it would be awesome to implement org-roam and denote links (I personally use denote, but understand if org-roam is a higher priority as there are more users).
