And I have only just noticed (because I was following up what you just
wrote) that Notes that aren't events don't have location fields - even if
they have tickler alarms set.

Why would I want this?

Example: I notice that a new Dilbert collection has been published and think
"I'll pick that up next time I am in the city centre". In RTM I dealt with
this by entering an unscheduled task with a location of @city. Then when I
was about to go into the city centre I looked at a filtered smart-list
showing all the undone tasks with a location of @city. Bingo: a lot of
little errands bubbled to the surface just when I was in a position to do
them.

I know I could write @city in the main text field. It just seems
inconsistent to me :)
