Subject: Re: org-agenda-move-date-from-past-immediately-to-today could work for non-days

i am referring to this code in org-agenda-date-later.  i do not
understand why there is (equal arg 1):

	(when (and org-agenda-move-date-from-past-immediately-to-today
		   (equal arg 1)
		   (or (not what) (eq what 'day))
		   (not (save-match-data (org-at-date-range-p))))
	  (setq cdate (org-parse-time-string (match-string 0) 'nodefault)
		cdate (calendar-absolute-from-gregorian
		       (list (nth 4 cdate) (nth 3 cdate) (nth 5 cdate)))
		today (org-today))
	  (when (> today cdate)
	    ;; immediately shift to today
	    (setq arg (- today cdate))))

i would want to move to today if needed, then the number of days, such
as 7 here:

  (defun alpha-org-agenda-do-date-later--week ()
    (org-agenda-do-date-later 7))

but perhaps there is a good reason for restricting this variable to
controlling only a single day move?
