Hi Bastien,

Thanks for replying and giving this your attention.

Various people upthread convinced me that my feature request wasn't
really worth it. (I do hope it didn't cost you too much time!) So, I
am content to drop it here :-)

That said, it seems only right to respond and let you know how things
sit. Feel free to let it die.

Unless I misunderstood, that does not do what I had in mind.

With a fresh git pull I invoked emacs with
   emacs --no-site-file -l minimalorgtestdotemacs test.org
where minimalorgtestdotemacs reads:

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org\\'" . org-mode))
(global-set-key "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
(global-set-key "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
(global-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
(global-set-key "\C-cb" 'org-iswitchb)
(transient-mark-mode 1)
(setq org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region t)

and test.org reads:

* test


    Org-mode version 7.7 (release_7.7.464.g679a0)
    GNU Emacs 23.2.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.20.0) of
2010-12-11 on raven, modified by Debian

If I have point and mark on either end of 2003-01-26 and invoke M-x
org-schedule, nothing occurs. By analogy with my original request,
what was desired was for the region to automatically get fed to the
datetime prompt and thus for the test subtree to acquire the scheduled
date of 2003-01-26 without further intervention.

So, thanks again for the attention to the suggestion. I'm more than
happy to let it rest here.
