OK, I had a quick look at this and to do it in Qt and it wasn't actually
that hard. You can see the result at:

This should support the full set of VTIMEZONE rules, have a look and let me
know if not.

I'm not sure if it will be ready for 5.6 feature freeze on Friday, or if
Thiago will approve of it, but clearly it's not going to be available when
KCalCore is released. I'm still thinking about work-arounds, but it's going
to be messy internally at the very least, and may not be do-able.
