This brings to mind a strange beastie over at llnl ... which i 
have never been able to fathom exactly what it is, what it does,
what it could be used for. But then, i don't know much!

It bears the intriguing name of pyHistory, and after reading and
reading and reading, their documents about it the best description
i could extract for my Parnassus database reads more like some
vaguly psychodelic prose poem.

http://localhost/~x/parnassus/apyllo.py?i=34945749

As i say, i have no idea what the thing actually is, but apparently
it records/recalls "events" of some kind! So while unlikely to suit
your purpose exactly, it may bear some investigating; and knowing
much more than I, you may even understand what it is. Whatever it 
is, it does sound quite fascinating!

Anyhow, just a mysterious database reminiscence. 

The real url is http://xfiles.llnl.gov/PyHistory/ so you can skip
the above and go straight there if desired.
