Recently, I almost had to break down and start a real GTD-style "waiting-for"

the tickle file, I might not be able to get it out when I see that the thing is done.
I fixed it for this time, though: I still put it in the tickle file, and I created a new
email folder where I can put emails indicating that an action of that type is
done. So, when the reminder comes up, I can check that folder to see whether
it's already done or not.
