You do realize you are not the first one to have that problem, don't
you?  Have you seen `org-agenda-todo-yesterday'?


Notice, however, that IMHO this is only a dirty hack.  A real solution
to the same problem, as you have noticed, is something that
I implemented a few years ago, and that was a radical change of my
sleeping patterns.  Now I seldom go to bed after 22:30, and usually get
up before 5:30.  This has too many advantages to list them in a short
email. :-) (Of course, I am aware not everyone can pull this off, also
for objective reasons.  My sister is a nurse, for example.)

Not sure whether this is a compliment, but I like it:-).
