Link to a document

I was testing Alfresco 2.0 and my intention was to have a single instance of a document in the system (e.g. agreement) and having links in multiple folders pointing to it (e.g. finance and project folder). Both of them should have the same functionality, i.e.  possibility to check-out/edit etc. but still working with the same document.  User rights for the link should be derived from the original folder.

I have found your system is capable of creating links, but link only allows to open the document and nothing else.

Do you plan to have at least possibility to add "Go to original location" button    directly to the link? (as link details do contain such action)
Actually from there is only a small step to have buttons 'check-out original' and 'edit original' next to it too.

Ideally, do you plan to implement links as they are implemented in Documentum (or a soft-file-link in linux if you wish)?
