Date trees allow for a very nice way for filing notes in chronological
order, but =C-c / dateRange= does not work for date trees. Previously,
active time stamps worked, but I didn't want all my notes showing up
in my agenda, so I just dealt with not having a great solution. Then
you provided one with the sparse-tree search timestamp-type selection
ability, which rocks.

Date trees are still the best way to use capture for foolproof
chronological storage of notes quickly... but I wouldn't be able to
extract notes in a particular date-range with current functionality.

Someone provided me with a capture template that would automatically
put things in the right place with inactive stamps, so that might have
solved my issue.
