The thing about flags is that I work with some people who flag every single email they send me as urgent. It has rather soured me on the entire usage of flags anywhere. I often see those emails and wish I could return it to them like we used to be able to do with letters... "sorry address unknown".

If I'm gonna flag it - it better be so urgent that the world will come to a standstill until it's done. (in which case it probably would never reach my todo list as it would be a drop everything and do it now situation - heh)

That's why I was looking for some way to work with perspectives that would give me what I wanted without flags. However, it's excellent for people to know they have alternatives and the due date/flag method is certainly workable as you both use it and are happy with it.
