Summary: Update 'The date/time prompt' section of Org Manual with time
range specs.

Comments:

Support for specifying the duration in absolute minutes could be useful
in some cases. (In my case, I was trying to plug in the duration of a
BBC production specified in minutes - for eg 92 min, 116 min, 205 min
etc).

Related bugs:

1. While trying to specify time range as '2:00-3:00' I see the following
   message - 'Error in post-command-hook: (parse-error not an integer
   3:)'. The corresponding calendar entry gets created though.

2. Is there support for agenda to wrap around the day. For example how
   would the following entries be interpreted 23:00+2:00, 3:00+48. Just
   curious.
