Attach a note to any type of item, or edit an already existing note. This
feature is useful if you do not have enough space to store all of your item

item for example.
You first need to highlight the item you want the note to be attached to. Then,
after pressing the edit note key, you will be driven to an external editor to
edit your note. This editor is chosen the following way:
* If the 'VISUAL' environment variable is set, then this will be the default

Once the item note is edited and saved, quit your favorite editor. You will
then go back to calcurse, and the '>' sign will appear in front of the
highlighted item, meaning there is a note attached to it.
