Note that the above DOES NOT WORK if you don't specify TODO states such as:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
                    ((todo "DONE|CANX"
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I have the impression this is a bug.

Moreover, you should even add active states such as "TODO" for
repeatable actions which do go back to the "TODO" state; hence, it

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
                    ((todo "TODO|DONE|CANX"
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I guess you should begin playing with things such as:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
  (time-add (current-time) (seconds-to-time -86400))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

to point to yesterday, etc.

But I'm not sure this is the right approach...
