The thing is that, if it's (1,1), the 2 classes should be merged IMO.
Except if you want to make it possible to be (1,*) in the future.
Personally, I see no advantages in sharing schedules. But maybe you do ?

Sorry, I really want your opinion before updating the diagram.

I just want to add that I agree with you. That said, implementing a GUI
with GTK will always require to write a bunch of code which doesn't need
discussion (not more than the few emails we had before the mailing list
was up). As I am pretty experienced in building GTK interfaces, I just
wrote what I thought didn't need much planning. Of course, I stopped
when I thought a good architecture was being necessary.
