to extend the same, I have a similar requirement where I want to capture
subtasks of a TODO item as I am working on it. So the (TODO)node under
which I want to capture changes with the time. It would be good If there is a
way to specify capture destination dynamically(most of the time the
capture destination is under the current clocked item)
