yes, I agree (on the not wanting time information etc).  but it all
depends on the design goals for this software.  I particularly like
having a graphical view of my commitments, especially for a month,
without worrying about detail.  Org's agenda view becomes cumbersome
(for me) when going beyond a week's view (or even a day sometimes...)

what I would like, however, is that the detailed view that is accessible
from hitting the space bar in the cfw view put me into an agenda view
for that day.  that would then give me full access to org!  this should
be quite simple: replace the detail view with a simple invocation of the
default org-agenda view (what you get from C-c a a, say) for that
particular date?

just some thoughts!


[1]  I often use Google's calendar for this, having uploaded all my
org details but I don't expect to use Google to update my org files.
