You might find pyGTD useful for that purpose. Along with other features it
has this one, too. Dependency graph is something I overused at a certain
point, but now I think I would go without. I've used pyGTD for some years,
along with several scripts to convert between its files and remind ones, so
that deadlines appear in the calendar.

In fact I still use it, but found myself drastically reducing the subset of
features I *really* need and use. Now I consider it pretty bloated and will
convert to something saner.

I'll give flo a try. I tried bug[1], suggested by pancake a while ago, and
abuse it for storing general purpose TODOs for several topics and it works
fine. I miss tagging, but it's not a big deal to add.

I arrived at the point that TODO stuff and calendar stuff are maybe better
managed by different tools.

my 2ct.
