The first URL does, or almost.  Clocking into a :LOGBOOK: drawer is what
I want.  Or, at least: it's what I want for long running tasks with a
lot of clocking in and out.

I am not sure I want this behaviour across all clockings and all org

After testing I have found out that:
 - default behaviour on an emacs23 org-mode is to clock into a :LOGBOOK:
   drawer if it exists
 - I can set the org-clock-into-drawer variable to t, and then it will
   create a :LOGBOOK: drawer when clocking in, and I can move the rest
   of the timestamps into i
 - My emacs23 org-mode doesn't have the CLOCK_INTO_DRAWER property, and
   setting the LOG_INTO_DRAWER property on a subtree to t and always
   (the values I tried) didn't have any effect on clocking

If there had been a quick way to add a :LOGBOOK: drawer to a TODO item,
I would have just used the current behaviour and inserted :LOGBOOK:
drawers at need.

Hm... I think the simplest way is to set org-clock-into-drawer to t in
.emacs, and see how that behaviour suits me.
