Hi Tim,

I’m not sure about your +0.5, as given +1 is a day I’d guess this to be half a
day. On the other hand, unit-ed versions like +30m seem pretty reasonable to me.
There was a discussion about making times like “2h” and “2h30” work in
org-time-stamp, I’m not sure, but there may be some overlap in functionality
that could be exploited.

All the best,
