Thats exactly the way I've been discovering Org's feature set. I've
been using Org full time for almost two years now, and every time I've
started to push a limit, I go back to the manual and find out it's
already there!

First agendas, then tables, exporting, properties (ok, so it was coded
after my request), clocking time...

Its a great tool, keep up the good work!
