Kronolith (Horde, the latest alphas, not the stable version) does all this 
quite handily. Users each get their own calendars, and they can have 
multiple calendars. Also, they can mark certain calendars as being visible 
globally to the rest of the world (shared). Furthermore a user can enable 
and disable the individual calendars making up their composite calendar view.


I think for myth you'd first need to start looking at the idea of users. 
Maybe something that wouldn't be targetted so much at security and instead 
simply be for having different personas in myth. Something like this would 
make life better for families, with different calendar views or mythphone 
settings, etc.

Let he who is without clue cast the first scone
