Beautiful -- thanks!

Is there any documentation I can read to get a sense of how things work?  I've done a little bit of browsing inside org.el and its comments, but that seems like it's not the most effective way to get up to speed.

You can use the same macro, replacing

  (org-get-heading nil nil)


  (org-entry-get (point) "$2")


  #+MACRO: GET-PROP (eval (or (save-excursion (ignore-errors (let ((org-link-search-inhibit-query t)) (org-open-link-from-string "[[#$1]]") (org-entry-get (point) "$2")))) "UNKNOWN VALUE"))
