Hi James, 

this small patch against current org-colview.el lets you have a custom
function for computing a "summary" of a property and displaying it in
the column.

To compute the time since the timestamp, you can use this patch and some
of your code like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-columns-custom-summary-function 

(defun org-time-since (time)
  "Get the number of days since `time'"
  (time-since (apply 'encode-time
                     (org-parse-time-string time)))))

(defun my-org-compute-since (&rest values)
  "Eval elapsted days since the entry's timestamp."
  (let* ((ts (org-entry-get (point) "TIMESTAMP")))
    (when ts (org-time-since ts))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This patch is just a workaround, though.  I think we should have a way
of adding more than one custom function, as Mikael Fornius suggested
when sending his first patch.

Let's see what's Carsten take on this.
