Thanks for clearing this issue, David.

I totally agree with Ingmar that this is definitely a bug:

The function is called "org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift" and in
its default behavior (without the universal argument), it does *not*
shift time.

When a user does "M-x org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift" and there
is no time shift, she/he gets irritated - just like Ingmar, just like
I was.


To me, the desired behavior should be like this:

org-clone-subtree ... the same behavior as David described above for
          the current situation of org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift
          with an optional universal argument to ask for time shift
          if you want.

org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift ... the old behavior where the
          user gets asked about the time shift

What function of those two is mapped to "C-c C-x c" is an
independent defined issue.

I would love to see this bug fixed.
