Sorry, it appears I didn't make my use case very clear.  What you are
speaking of is clocking into a task, and indeed that does show up on the

What I am after is more of a overview of "How many total TODO tasks do I
have", ideally with some function to limit or match based on tag.

Something like this in the modeline:

[Work: 3/10 Home: 2/20]
                     ^--- Total number of TODOs in home.org
                  ^------ Total number of TODOs due today in home.org

That way I have a constant reminder of the number of things left without
having to pull up the agenda.
