Thanks, works great!  Looks like you forgot to add the help text to
the defcustom again though ;-)

This is also great - it would be *even* better if we also had the
per-template option of automatically jumping there.  This could be
implemented in exactly the same way as you did the "don't prompt me"
%! option above.  The justification is that each remember template
defines a mini-workflow, and some will then require immediate editing
of the new item in its final context.  Additionally it would provide a
workaround to the problems described here:


since if the new item is immediately moved to its final context,
keywords/tags/priorities etc. can be set there rather than from within
the *Remember* buffer.

This is really cool, however there is one problem: SPC is now bound to
minibuffer-complete-word in this context.
