I can see that too. If we need a date at which a series of reoccurring
tasks ultimately ends, I think it should be a separate date, perhaps
called "Reoccurs until". And actually, being able to specify when a
repeated task ends isn't mentioned in the blueprint. I left it out for
simplicity, but I think it might be required.

Do we need "Due for" to be the next due date for date-based sorting to
work correctly.

I am not sure. I think this might be resolved if we answer the first
question, right?

thanks much
