Add configurable linkhandler for arbitrary records
Integrate the well-known features of the aoe_linkhandler extension into the core.
The functionality shall not be integrated as another sysext, but should be a basic functionality.For 6.x+ there are various attempts for compatible version, but all of them have different feature sets, the most notable are:
The functionality actually comprises multiple features, which will be handled in subtasks.

I just wanted to mention that the guys from Intera released a great extended version of the linkhandler. Please see and check https://github.com/Intera/typo3-extension-linkhandler. I think some of the additional features are quit interesting.

I'm extremely busy implementing this feature! I'm working at least 10h per week on this topic only. As you can see with the subtasks I split this "mess" into several subtasks. Currently I'm tearing apart the code of ElementBrowser in focused classes. This way I got a good picture what is going on there and I'm 70% through. Once the "Tabbing API" for the ElementBrowser is done, the remainder is relatively easy.
So, yes, 7.5 still is the target.

- Target version changed from 7 LTS to 8 LTS
I would like to inform you all on the current state of this story.
I worked heavily to prepare the Core to provide a cleaner API to make the link browser extensible, and it was an aweful load of work to reach this, but hey, we made it!
Unfortunately, due to some private matters, I didn't manage to incorporate all funtionality of the linkhandler extension into the Core until the 7 LTS release.
Fortunately, Francois started to work on the patch for this in parallel and a promising draft is ready. As there is no chance anymore to merge this into 7, Francois will publish this patch in a new version of the linkhandler extension. Luckily, it is now much easier to integrate this functionality with the extension (without a lot of x-classing and so on).
Once we have this extension stable, we will finally merge the functionality to version 8 of the Core.
Thanks for your patience and sorry for not making it 100% perfect for CMS 7.
