Yes indeed.

So far, I have avoided calendar sub-pages, for the following reasons:

- they should form part of a general wiki sub-page mechanism

- there isn't yet an agreed markup for denoting subpages; I made
  an experimental version using [[*abc]] and the last discussion
  on sub-pages tended towards, but did not definitively agree on,
  [[, abc]]

- I wasn't able to come up with an overall design and set of
  behaviours that I felt happy with

In general, I follow a rule of 'when in doubt, leave it out'.

But now might be a good time to revisit this, in the context
of just the calendar, but with an eye on the wider picture.

So the first proposal is that we'd denote a sub-page by
writing [[, abc]].

I wouldn't want to go any further until we are satisfied that
this is the best markup to choose. From memory, using a comma
was generally considered to be 'not bad, and the best of an
otherwise not very good lot'.
