later means a lot later ;). Maybe months or even years. My personal use
case is, that I have dozens of recurring tasks. Now I leave the country
for a few months. The tasks only make sense, when I am here. So I want to
disable them and enable them, when I'm back. I can't use
org-cancel-repeater, because that loses the repeater.

There was a question on the ml about disabling recurring tasks many
moons ago. I will incorporate my new knowledge about properties into my
functions and then reply to that question.
