I do usually use the logging/notes functionality, but if you need more
text, why not just make it the body of the TODO? A TODO is a heading
like any other, you can just put a description of the outcome underneath
it. If that gets unwieldy, separate the bits into multiple sub-headings,
and/or make the TODO itself one smaller part of a larger TODO.
