Sorry this is a little old, but if you're still willing to provide some
functions, I'd like to see them! I'm using org mode to keep track of
baking recipes, which are traditionally recorded as ratios of ingredient
weights, which are then used to calculate an actual recipe based on how
much dough you want. Any food for thought regarding programmatic
manipulation of properties would be very welcome…
