DD-MM-YYYY. YYYY-MM-DD would be better, because that's like ISO 8601,

Yeah, YYYY-MM-DD sounds best to me. I kinda rushed the definition of date:
because there was no community input regarding its syntax.

Instead of "date:+n", how about "before:" and "after:" (maybe "since:").
In my use case, where I want to see all scans that happened in the last
week, it's better to say "after:-7" than "date:+7". This also provides a
reasonable way to restrict the search to a date range.

It was a matter of time before someone noticed the ugliness of "date:+7". :)
Yeah, "before:" and "after:" sound good.

what?) What do you think about

date:~YYYY-MM-DD

to mean plus or minus one day (so from 00:00 on December 24 until 00:00
on December 27, a span of three days total), and

date:~~YYYY-MM-DD

to mean plus or minus three days (a range of seven days total).

Sweet. Adding fuzziness to the TODO.
