Hi Org-moders,

I am often frustrated because I clock a lot of things and some of them
are repeated (i.e, coffee, read mails, etc.).  So when I want to clock
time I spend drinking coffee, the best I found was to search for a
headline matching "Coffee".  Or to tag frequent clocks and do some
agenda research on this tag.  Too long.  :-)

So here is a solution for this need : to add a shortcut property to
entries I would like to "bookmark" and insert matching entries in the
org-clock-select-task menu.  This can be done with :

* TODO Pause and drink coffee

then C-u C-c C-x C-i p. And voilà, "Pause and drink coffee" is clocked!

Here is a patch that adds a hook into org-clock-select-task and a module
that adds the shortcut feature.  I tried to be the least intrusive
possible, if this proves to be useful, the hook trick might not be
