The value of attempting to code to the iCal standard is you don't
have to implement it completely. You only have to implement as much
as your GUI can handle. Besides probably 20% of the standard handles
80% of the common use cases. So you can start out with a subset of
the iCal standard that does what is minimally necessary (as well as
possible in the GSoC timeframe) and have another/more project(s) to
handle more of the standard at a future date. This is the place for
handle all the types of recurring events. For the calendar display,
it is better to handle it with AJAX and perhaps some fetch ahead if
you want to be fancy.
