- why aren't the classrooms treated as resources also? it's always nice to have things unified.

- so the user will end up with a timetable of teacher-class-room cells?
        and then we'll get modules, that will attach subject informations back to them?
        i don't see why is this useful, but it's quite intriguing though...
        maybe give an event a name also?

- in the scope of these two comments, why not make all eleents have "name"'s, and not some 'name's and some "id"'s...
