That's a good point.

If one has one very distant event, then one probably have more of
them, and anything longer
than a few hours should probably be stored in persistant storage
and/or replicated or they will be
forgotten when the power goes out and nobody checked that the diesel
backup's  start batteries
were charged.

That case alone makes this a larger project. Can crone.erl do this?
