it might be worth expanding this idea to cover any Horde object, incl. 
notes, bookmarks, messages, ... . Like a meta-container. There is a 
connection from any member to the meta-container and from there to all 
members. Maybe, such container could contain meta-containers as well.

In Kronolith, the content of such meta-container (the current event is 
member of - aka its parent) could be displayed in (very) brief view as yet 
another tab, in Mnemo it would be a real link to some other page.
