Hmm - not sure this does what I want. Can you tell me if the expression:

 (tags-todo "TODO=\"NEXT\"+Home+SCHEDULED=\"\"" nil)

looks for a TODO=NEXT, with TAG=Home and *no* SCHEDULED date ?
(i.e. there is no SCHEDULED: <xxxx-xx-xx > line associated with that
item) ?

My results are confusing at the moment. I can see some SCHEDULED items
when I wouldn't expect to.

 Pete> But that does seem very complex. (it also feels slow).

Yeah - taking around 30-40 seconds to build the buffer.  Are there any
potential speedups ?
