*cough* flexible theming, better non-suck default themes *cough*

I'll attend. Here's a pointer to the "gig" module [1] that Colin put  
together, using the location and event APIs...sort of, since he re- 
used the data structures but in point of fact it was very hard to re- 
use other components. This will be committed to Drupal.org in a  
couple of weeks.

Basically, I think we have a chance in the 4.7 cycle to re-look at a  
lot of these components.

guaranteed to work right now.
