*nod* Fair enough; i was just making up some numbers in order to be

It depends on how you've set up MobileOrg. i sync via ssh, and thus sync
manually via org-mobile-push and org-mobile-pull from within Emacs. If
you use e.g. Dropbox, things might be different - i can't comment on

See above - at this stage, for the purposes of understanding the core of
the flow you're wanting, the exact numbers don't matter so much. But in
terms of potential UI access to such flows, i'll certainly keep in mind
that lists might include many dozens of items.

*nod* Fair enough. i'll check the MobileOrg issues page:


for any equivalent and/or similar proposals, and submit a new issue if
there aren't any. Either way, i'll see what i can do about adding this
functionality. :-) Note, though, that i'm not the lead developer, so i
don't have any control over if/when any such functionality will be (a)
included in the master branch and (b) included in a release.
