Subject: what do do when multiple functions store a link

Recently I have had an issue where multiple functions may store a link,
e.g. to a bibtex entry.

In this case, org-mode seems to prompt me to ask which function to store
the link with, with an initial input of the first function, which masks all
the options that are available. This happens inside org-store-link in ol.el
at line 1495 for me. in

(apply #'org-link-store-props
(cdr (assoc-string
      (completing-read
"Which function for creating the link? "
(mapcar #'car results-alist)
nil t (symbol-name name))
      results-alist)))

because of the (symbol-name name).

Is there an easy way to avoid this, or to modify the order of the functions
used? I want to see all the options for storing, or better, to just store
them all and let me choose later when I use org-insert-link.

John
