That's exactly what I've been doing so far.  But that's not that convenient.
 The energy level appears in front of the action headline.  This adds noise
to the real action info.

I think I'll have to make the "Energy Level" an orgmode property that
appears in the :PROPERTIES: drawer of the action.

I'm not used to defining new properties in orgmode.  I'll try to define an
"Energy" property as well as functions like "org-agenda-cmp-user-defined" in
order to correctly use "org-agenda-sorting-strategy", unless someone has
already done so...
