Still need to go through the changes but I've left my thoughts below.

That's fair. From the looks of things, it does get us 70% of the way to
what we want so that may be good enough. More on this in a bit though.

We probably want to bump the API version to 1.1 too. I _may_ have
already done this though. If nothing else, we should note the bumped

I've got some API usability improvements incoming. Other than that it's
just the Events JSONification which I'd like to have a go-no go
decision on. I'll try to work on the migration for that this weekend.
