A couple of years back Andre developed a Library for processing .ics 
format data (or something along those lines)  It was probably ahead of 
its time, but now with Google Calendar, iPhone, iCal, Omnifocus, etc. 
all dancing around the .ics standard maybe it would interesting if Andre 
posted those old libs? I don't know if they can talk directly to an 
iCal. I actually have number of requests to build some iCal "add ons" 
here, so I'm looking into it..  
and I would really love to be able to talk to Google Calendar 
independently of a browser!

Address book seems to use a flavor of SQLite format 3, (check 
application support and open the addressbook in BBedit) and there's 
vCard for export and import, but you probably know that already...
