Bug Description

We should be able to use the quickadd syntax when we create a new task in the task editor. We should be able tu type someting like :

- Make some cookies tags:kitchen due:soon

so the quickadd syntax handler should be move into the task constructor. That will permit to use this syntax every where in the application and even in external ones.

summary: - Creating a task in the task editor shoudl support the quickadd syntax
+ Creating a task in the task editor should support the quickadd syntax

That seems a good idea.

Is there any argument to not support syntax in the title? What would be the drawback?

I like the idea, but not the syntax. The whole point is to insert tasks as naturally as possible.
Take a look at what the folks at RTM have done:
