The way I'm reading that macro, it'll prompt me for a date, etc. That
would be useful for creating a range of dates in a tree if I needed to
define a time period.

I guess I didn't explain myself clearly. I wanted to generate those
dated headings under the "Daily" heading for the current date
only. Just a shortcut so I can hit a single key to add todo items for
today, and have them added to my chronological "Daily" tree.

I've just found that I'm managing TODO and agenda scheduled items
well, but I didn't have a good way to handle all the little
miscellaneous items that pop up. No reason to spend time filing them
elsewhere, just a date would suffice. It also helps keep the tree
sparse when searching.
