+1 for this feature. Also, I think our desire for such a feature could
be met with a calendar-view, perhaps re-using some org-table or
org-columns source?

I'm envisioning I would very much like something akin to an ASCII
4-day calendar view (like the default Google Calendar view).

Even if we could line up four days' agenda views horizontally (with an
appointment-style timeline), I would find this useful.
