Notsure Create event/appointment from contact

I have browsed quite a few forums, but I've yet to find an app that will do this.

Simply put, what I (and seemingly hundreds of others!) want is a way of selecting a contact from the contact list, opening the contacts menu (or maybe long-pressing on the contact name) and clicking 'Create Appointment'. This would then open the calendar app (stock or A.N.Other) at a new appointment and would then:
(1) automatically fill in the contact name in the subject field (perhaps using text such as 'meeting with nnnn' as a default)
(2) automatically add the default contact address as the meeting location (or perhaps a combo box allowing selection from Home Address, Work Address, other)

As simple as this seems (the fields are surely accessible from any app), I find it hard to believe that no app out there does this!

Perhaps it's the case that it's difficult to add a 'context menu function' to the existing default contact functionality - maybe this would necessitate a hack into android (like a plugin) rather than creation of a new app.

But even the big replacement shell apps (SPB) don't have this functionality, nor is it available from GO Contacts PRO, or 'Calendar Event'

Can anyone help??

Dialer One does this. Long press a contact and you get the option to add calendar event. It pulls up the calendar entry screen and pre-fills the event title with the contact. It doesn't pull the address on file though, or the phone number, just the contact name.

You can find it in Google Play.
There are a lot of dialers, I've been using this for years though and really like it.
