Hyperlinks to other hexes

Peter Seckler says: Some way to link to other hexes. Perhaps any four-digit number should automatically link to a hex, if and only if it exists in $map_data?

Also, a way to generate the coordinates and link to them for trails and rivers: from/to.

Instead of this:

0201: On one of the islands of this swamp there is a huge mud mound. 34 goblins live here, led by Beetle Rider. The goblins have tamed 5 giant wolves. Goblins love to ride these into battle. Eirwen's Channel runs through here. Old Fish Path leads through here.

I think I want to write tables that will generate this:

0201: On one of the islands of this swamp there is a huge mud mound. 34 goblins live here, led by Beetle Rider. The goblins have tamed 5 giant wolves. Goblins love to ride these into battle. Eirwen's Channel runs through here from 0302 to 0101. Old Fish Path leads through here from 0302 to 0101.

And even better:

0302: This is the Deep Forest. There is a clearing in this forest where an old statue of Set still stands. You shouldn't stray too far from the trails because this forest has been cursed by the presence of 5 harpies luring men into the depths of the forest and to their death with their magical singing. There is a town of 600 humans led by the aereomancer Aliza (level 10) who lives in a keep with a retainer, the druid Marek (level 7) and their whip, the necromancer Ananya (level 4). The small stone huts outside are protected by a town wall and the river. The local contact for the secret society of the Infernal Templars of the Inexplicable Dragons is Yared (level 4). There is a ferry and a temple dedicated to Nergal. The small temple here is actually a sick house. This is where the sick go to die. There are currently 2 old people here. The healthiest one is Yannik. Eirwen's Channel from 0303 and Deep Rindle from 0402 merge with War Brooklet which flows from 0401 to 0201. Gold Trail from 0303 and Old Fish Path from 0201 meet here.
