Hi Tom,

I have now added org-choose.el, it is part of the current git status.

A few comments:

Great.

This is nice, I earned something new! :convert-widget.....

I have not run the tests myself yet.

Yes, this is correct.  I appreciate you noticing this additional
point where changes have to be made.
However, for now I have opted for a different solution:  I made the
sequence interpretation the last test in the cond chain, so that
all interpretations that are not `type' will fall back to this  
mechanism.
I envision that we can add another hook if someone wants an additional
way of handling this.  I would like to minimize the number of variables
where an add-on has to insert itself.

I have commented the corresponding line which tries to add to the
non-existing variable org-todo-normal-interpretations' in org-choose.el

I hope you agree with this solution, if not let me know.

I think what is missing now is documentation.  It seems to me that
there should be some minimal documentation in org-choose.el,
and it would be great to get a tutorial on Worg which describes
this in more detail.

Thanks a lot for this contribution, and for your precision and
attention to detail.

- Carsten
