Gabor, thanks for taking this on.

We all agree that Views etc. are a much more complete solution. I  
think we can also agree that views + event + CCK are not ready for a  
core The narrow solution which the core archive module provides -- of  
browsing by date -- is's just narrow.

If anyone wants to work an an alternate archive.module functional  
implementation using a or other minimal implementation  
(perhaps taking the opportunity to remove tracker module and  
implementing "unread" functionality as on'm  
sure the community would look forward to reviewing patches :P
