Hi Leif,

You made me do it! :-) I sort of stole your proposal and started creating a
new one. It differs in rather important ways from your proposal, so I
preferred not modifying your wiki page. I also think it's important to
decouple the (voting for a) full timetable solution from the solution where
tags are added to indicate interval during 'opening_hours' or a route,
which is a lot more likely to be accepted.

So here goes:

Please let me know what you think. What I still haven't figured out yet is
how to differ weekdays that fall in school holiday periods from "normal"
weekdays. So work in progress.
