Hmm... Maybe it's my lack of a Palm Pilot which is speaking, but I'm 
having trouble visualizing this.  At least, I can see how you could 
see free/busy status from the bars, but is there enough room to 
actually show appointment information?

That's actually the problem the quick view is designed to address, 
seeing the text of appointments without needing to resize the window 
large enough so that, proportionally, each box is big enough to read 
all the information.

Or am I missing something?

(And in any case, the quick view code I have is an approx. 20 line 
hack which I think is worth putting in until we get around to 
rewriting the week view.  More importantly, the 20 lines are already 
written, except for a decision on what mouse binding to give it.)
