The last example in https://blog.jethro.dev/posts/capturing_inbox/[1], namely:
(setq org-capture-templates
      `(("l" "org-protocol-capture" entry
         (file "~/path/inbox.org")
        "* TODO [[%:link][%:description]]\n\n %i"
        :immediate-finish t)))
Seems to work consistently with:
`xdg-open "org-protocol://capture?template=l&url=URL$(date --iso-8601=s)&title=TITLE$
(date --iso-86
01=s)&body=BODY$(date --iso-8601=s)"`

Provided I have opened at least one org buffer before hand, otherwise it opens a buffer 
named `"org-protocol://capture?template=l&url=URL&title=TITLE&body=BODY"
` at what point it can get messy. Probably I have to "start" somehow "org-mode" first, and 
it doesn't get enough started from my `init.el`.

Goal is to have the capturing work in the background, with emacs started as a daemon, 
but with no opened emacsclient frame:
capture, simply, silently, unobtrusively.
