Sorry, I misinterpreted this, I now realize that you wanted to keep
the rrule as a string, not as a table. I suggested a table because it
is easier to treat complex events and exceptions this way. I'll look
deeper in the Ical format for recurring events, but as far as I know,
it doesn't support exceptions from recurrence rules. If we decide we
don't want exceptions, I think using Ical's format is the right way to
do it.

Sorry for the badly formated email above.
