[drupal-devel] Event changes

After looking at the event code for 4.6, and also the upgrade path, I
want to discuss the idea of perhaps creating a simple event node type.

I reallize that long term flexinode-like concepts will go into core,
but flexinode is not an ideal solution for *simple* event needs --
it's not simple to theme, the upgrade path is horribly complicated,
and it (unnecessarily) places a requirement of using flexinode if you
want an event that doesn't "use up" a core node type.

So, my suggestion is as follows:
* create an event.module that is the *real* 4.6 version and duplicates
the functionality of the 4.5 events module (i.e. a location field) but
ties into the new event code
* move Aaron's event API stuff to a module called eventapi.module

An alternative would also be to make event + eventapi a bundle: this
would mean a single download enables a basic event node type.
