Okay, what you want is simpler than I had assumed. My goal isn't really
to make something that dims ancestors, though: it's to give users a
number of choices for indicating hierarchical relationships between
entries in agenda views. That ought to encompass your needs, but it
probably will end up being a little more complicated.

The main problem is that the codebase is very scattered, and there are a
large number of different functions that produce and display agenda-like
entries. To make this (for whatever value of "this") work for all agenda
views, it will take quite a bit of poking about, and making little
design decisions. I want to make sure that the general strategy is
acceptable before I put that work in.
