Ok - that helps, seems like this kind of example should be on the
wiki. With all the "implementation references" listed its a pain to
find out which one is a good example. Just pull an example out.

Wow that seems complex. But makes sense I guess. Why would the
"Science Building" be the org? Perhaps the fn would be "Science
building" and org be "Calvin College"? Of course, then that would be
like putting an address book entry for "Science Building" when really
it's all part of just "Calvin College", but the address specific to
this event is "Science Building". However, if the building went in the
adr, then that would imply that was the address for all of the org?

Ah, makes sense, can that be added to the wiki?

Thanks for the points!
