To get the current date and time, I can use (current-time).

But instead, I want to get the CLOSED timestamp of the current subtree and store it in a variable, so that I can pass it to format-time-string.

What's the simplest function to retrieve the CLOSED timestamp of a subtree?

;; in some hook or something:

(let ((timestamp (assoc "CLOSED" (org-entry-properties))))
  (when timestamp
    ;; couder is timestamp's value
    (princ (cdr timestamp))))
