Hi Mitch,

I just went over all the code (just skimming over it) and i really
like the approach you've chosen :)
A real good cool job on your side!

Too bad i couldn't provide any help during the development of this.
But i will gracefully use your creation when trying to hook in the
Akonadi calendar events once Qt 5.3 is out.

Thanks again!
