Hi Juan,

the function must be a symbol in this setup, not a string.
I am rejecting this patch.

Hi Carsten + crowd,

Below is a patch for org-capture when the template is given by a LISP

Problem was that the function is inside a string (not a LISP form), so
the string has to be evaluated explicitly.

Now it's working for me. I use it to get a template formed by
URL/title and selected text from Opera browser (on Mac OSX). I´ll
publish this after polishing the code.

I've also been testing exotic org-capture templates and I've found no
other errors yet.

Best regards,
