Subject: specify time of day for org-resolve-clocks, not number of minutes

I posted a question on emacs.stackexchange:

...about using a time of day when using org-resolve clocks, but didn't get
an answer. Here's my question; perhaps this more targeted group can help:

I can use org-resolve-clocks if I've been away from a task but kept the
clock for the task running -- but when I do that and select K ("keeps
however many minutes you request and then immediately clock out of that
task."), I have to specify a number of *minutes*.

Instead, I want to specify a *time*, since usually that's what I remember
("my coworker stopped to ask a question at 10:45"). I'd like a way to get
the K functionality, but instead of doing the math to figure out a number
of minutes, I want to just type in a time of day.

Is there a way to do this already? Or would this require a new clock
resolution command -- perhaps "t", for "time": it would effectively just be
a wrapper around "k" that parses the provided time, looks at the current
clocked-in task, computes the appropriate number of minutes, and then just
does whatever "k" (or "K") does.


Ceci n'est pas une .signature.
