show tasks nearby that are relevant NOW

I did not use the "nearby" function very much, since it shows all tasks nearby without a filter on what is relevant now.

With a smart list "_NEARBY" in my favourites this changed:

I use location for two purposes:
1. tasks that are bound to a location and due at a certain point in time
2. my shopping tasks that are bound to a location e.g. the supermarket without a due date to pick up if you are nearby

I now created a smart list "__NEARBY" and put it in my favourites:
"locatedWithin:500m AND (dueBefore:Now OR startBefore:Now OR due:never)"

The tasks in this list are grouped by location.

This list now shows all tasks nearby that are relevant to me:
Tasks, that are due and where the location is nearby and all tasks that have to be done nearby, which have no due date.

So I see, what really has to be done nearby. I find this very useful...
