Just forwarding to the list.  I forgot to.

On a similar note, I like using the clocktable to see how long things
have taken me, but sometimes I just want to put a time value under a
heading, not a time range (because I forgot to clock in/out). Could
CLOCK: => 2:00 or something similar work? If it did, maybe this could
work for Russell as well (if he didn't mind using a clocktable instead
of seeing it in the headline).

Btw, I like Eddward's idea. Two other candidates for the property
list/table are status (TODO, DONE) and tags. It might be more work
however refactoring all the code that uses/displays them than the
consistency would be worth.


Well, I wouldn't want too go to far in changing/breaking things.  I
just know that some things matter to me, but they might not matter to
enough others to build it into org.  Tags and todo sequences are
pretty general in themselves and it make sense for them to be treated
special bu org and agenda.  Also, all of this hinges on it not being
too unreasonable to fit into org-mode.  I just figured that attaching
an easy to access list of key value pairs that can be filtered on and
use in calculations might be generally useful.  I was just trying to
expand on the schedule keywords.

I haven't use clock table yet so I can't really comment on that.  I
was going to try to use deadlines, estimates and dependencies on todos
to build something like a gant chart or milestone table.
