Yeah... That makes perfect sense.

Assuming use of the quick add bar is even possible, couldn't the
parameters entered simply be added to the "reoccurs" field in the task?
Similar to how I can add "due:2012-02-15" on the quick add bar, then
edit the due date later, after the task has been created.

I think "starting on" would be nice to have, but not required.

"Due for" I do think is required so that sorting in the main GTG window
continues to work as it does now. For example, I use "All tasks" and
sort for "Due" so that I can assign tasks to my @today tag.

I think it would be nice (by adding or removing content to the
"reoccurs" field). That said, I don't know how often I would do that

Happy to. I will mock something up and add it.

Great, thanks. I did not think that the blueprint would be complete, or
even that what I added was the only correct way to implement it.

thanks again and hope all is well
