New submission from Michał Pasternak <michal.dtz at gmail.com>:
I was looking for some library to handle calendar events. Something PIM-
style, something useful, that could check if, for example, 2 weekly
repeated events that start on Monday morning and last until December
conflict with each other.
Then I found 'calendar' module in the standard library.
My question: how this thing ever made it to the standard library?
Maybe it was useful back in the days, if somebody could not get BSD or
GNU sources for cal(1) . Nowadays, even if it is able to print HTML
calendars, lets face it - who will use that functionality? You can
customised in a thousands of ways.
I suggest we delete this module completly.
