Well this will only cover composing and replying to emails, but if you
have a function that automatically makes a phone call, I suppose it
would serve as a template...

Mostly I'm doing it because a full half of my work seems to be replying
to interminable emails, and I wanted something that would keep me in the
agenda as much as possible: hit a key on a TODO, type the email, send
it, and there you are back in the agenda again. It's turning out to be
a little more complicated than I thought!
