I think it would be more than enough to start only with events as Ankur
says. Having the main events categories would be extremely helpful. I know
Robert Mayr is working into some even more fancy calendar infra, but so
far, I think we can go forward with this one.

I'm attaching the mail to him in case he's not at the mail list and see if
he gets the hint :D
