Hi Carsten,

I figured that you had already optimized the agenda quite a lot and
that there probably wasn't much that could be done, so I suggested the
only thing that seemed like it might be fast and would not be too
brittle.  I didn't realize the code would need to be rewritten.

For me, everything in the agenda is slow that requires refreshing or
creating a view.  I don't know how to be more specific.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis denialism is causing death (decades early;
Jason et al. 2006) and severe suffering (worse than nearly all other
diseases studied; e.g. Schweitzer et al. 1995) and grossly corrupting
science.  http://www.meactionuk.org.uk/What_Is_ME_What_Is_CFS.htm
