I have a couple of questions on going public with this API (alonside the 
tidyups you refer to). First, I have a specific question about timezone 
"phase-floating" events, see:

and second, I would like to know if anyone has done a feature comparison 
between our API, and the usage of either or both of MS Exchange and Lotus 
Notes. While I do not think we should be constrained by these proprietary 
implementations of groupware, we should at least understand the maturity of 
our API in comparision with the extant solutions before we open it up.

I hope this sounds reasonable!

Thanks, Shaheed

P.S. Yes, of course I will help if I can...I at least have access to Exchange 
as a client.
