[pmwiki-users] calendars and contact lists

Folks: I'd like to use pmwiki to track birthdays, anniversaries, etc.  I 
also would like to use pmwiki to track contacts (especially friends and 
families).  Somehow I would like to be keep all the information for a 
person in one place.

I see there is a FoxContacts recipe that can track people (and could be 
easily expanded to include a birthday, anniversary, etc.); then this 
information is available as a page text variable.  Also, there are 
calendar recipes, in particular, PmCalendar and WikiCalendar.  But these 
require separate date pages (at least PmCalendar does; I've not looked 
at WikiCalendar as closely).

Anyone have a suggestion on how I could get a calendar that efficiently 
constructs entries from page text variables of pages in a Contacts (or 
People) group?  Or some other approach that is efficient and will be 
flexible enough to allow me to correct dates I've entered, without 
having to remember to also correct the corresponding calendar pages?
