I find that completing a task often results in follow-up information
that I'd like to add to the entry in my org file.  In this way, my
follow-up notes are connected to the action which generated them.

Here's an example.  Prior to doing the task, I might have something
like this:
** TODO Generate a histogram of Foo data
   - Use August test data

Then, after completing the task, I might want something like this:
** DONE Generate a histogram of Foo data
   CLOSED: [2006-09-06 Tue 12:00]
   - Use August test data
    - Histogram is [[file:foo-aug-histogram.pdf][here]]

I like this idea and will try to implement it. However, where to store the followup note is difficult to determine - how about inserting it directly after the CLOSED time stamp? This may be not be perfect because it will be before any other information in the entry, but I find it even more difficult to have it at the end of a possibly very long subtree of reference data.
