Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
* lisp/org-clock.el (org-clock-get-table-data): Pass tstart and tend time strings through `org-matcher-time' to allow relative times besides absolute ones, convert result to encoded time. * doc/org.texi (The clock table): Document acceptance of relative times in tstart and tend, link to syntax description and provide example. Inspired in the original relative times proposal by Ilya Shlyakhter, this is less invasive and it doesn't modify core functions, thus it avoids the original's infinite recursion when hitting normal dates in other locations.
