Bug Description

It is really nice how to insert subtasks and tags by typing - subtask and @tag, but it would be great to also be able to type due:2008-08-01_3pm or starts:tomorrow and so on to insert the date quickly via the keyboard.

I think a very rigid #2009-03-01-15:30 format that uses the existing "tag" code could work as a first instance, before more fancy regex is added?

I guess we should, in fine, get rid of every possible form fields and
give priority to flexible data entries. We actually already though of
doing such an implementation for date input. I guess we should try
this with as you suggest. Editor rework is scheduled for the 0.2.

unfortunately 'due' and 'defer' don't work in Russian ('до', 'отложить')... English ones are OK though

I've tried it in the current development version and it works for me (see the attached picture). Which version of GTG do you use?
