Thanks again.  I played around with this for some time, but there is one
problem.  The agenda has a lot of settings, and replicating them with
org-map-entries turned out to be no fun.

Is there a way to plug into the agenda generating functions somehow to
get a Lisp list of agenda items?  I'm pretty sure that can be done -
org-super-agenda does something similar, after all - but I have no idea
why.  I could delve into agenda source myself, but is is quite hairy, so
maybe someone knows that already?
