      Description

      It is often the case that a container (a page or mega component) will contain multiple ActionLink components that all perform the same operation. This ends up requiring multiple event handler methods.

      It would be nice if there was an alternative to ActionLink that would trigger a named event in its container. This would coalesce all those event handler methods into a single method. It would generally result in a shorter, more readable URL, and similar components (for instance, all the different sorting links in a Grid) would all use the same URL.
