It's not quite the same as story. It would have the location field, 
just like the existing event module, and be
"event-enabled" by default.

And it's not just Bryght....I'm thinking about all the users out there 
right now that have the event module installed, and don't use flexinode 
today (never mind any arguments about the complexity of flexinode -- 
theming it, and so on).

Even with CCK, I can see the utility of having a pre-defined "basic" 
event type. For instance, we'll likely add some other views to it, like 
a tabular view of an entire year's worth of events (which is something 
that has been oft requested).
