Hello,

I have a question about the use-case for org-evaluate-time-range,
because for what I would use it for, its behavior seems
counter-intuitive.  Consider a time range:

    <2011-08-12 Fri>--<2011-08-14 Sun>

Calling org-evaluate-time-range on this range reports 2 days, but for
situations when I would use time ranges, I would have expected an
_inclusive_ count of 3 days.  The span represented from a friday through
a sunday is indeed a span of 3 days.

Can anyone explain the logic behind the current behavior?  Thank you.

I'm using org version 6.33x.

Timestamps with no time are considered to be at midnight (00:00)

So Midnight Friday to Midnight Sunday is 48 hours.
