Interesting discussion here.  I was thinking about todo lists and
calendar events myself as I'm trying to figure out how to markup
project management data using microformats on the web that could be
automatically scraped to generate Gantt chart-like output, as well as
potentially being pulled into a program on a PDA.

In my case, I have a series of calendar events that lead up to the
completion of one TODO item, but I could see where you might have a
list of TODO items that need to be completed at one calendar event
