Hi Eric, Benjamen, Daniel, and all,

>>> [...] What do you think about all this?

Thanks to get the debate launched. I was fearing to stay alone ;-)

Regarding the clocked times:

Yep, this seems to work perfectly -- did not catch any conflict yet, but
usage
time still low.

Example results:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* My sub-project
  :LOGBOOK:
  CLOCK: [2010-06-14 Mon 09:15]--[2010-06-14 Mon 10:11] =>  0:56 (Sebastien
Vauban)
  - Test.
  :END:
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Your proposed format seems nice to me.

Regarding other features, like state changes:

`org-user-identifier')

Thanks for adding this in the loop. Of course, same combat...

That'd be great. I now dream of the ability to get a "revision history" to
be
easily inserted at the begin of a document, like all pros do.

I am sure this is a *must* for collaborative work, for being able to spread
the word. And I'm sure we're very close to get it -- like the above
proposition of Benjamen.

But, for being useful, it absolutely needs to be in the common base of Org,
as
default behavior. If I need all my co-workers to add my specifics to their
Org
customization, it's lost.

Best regards and thanks for your ideas.

Seb
