At the moment, the storage format in use is iCalendar, being stored as
RFC5322 messages. We can certainly discuss this further, but I'd like
to keep this thread centered on where to store the data instead of how
to store the data.

There are several CalDAV clients out there (Apple's iCal, Mozilla
Lightning, the IOS Calendar app, Android CalDAV app to name a few). I
personally favor supporting open standards where possible, but again,
this is something we can open up in a separate thread to discuss further.

We'll take you up on any offer to provide development assistance! I
created a CalDAV component in bugzilla earlier today and Ken will be
populating that with known bugs and missing features later this evening.
