[standards-jig] calendaring?

If your goal is to be able to "chat" with your calendar, I'd strongly
suggest using something like ChatBot, and simply making a scheduling
plugin.  If your goal is to integrate scheduling functionality into
a Jabber client, why not just embed a calendaring client (for some
reasonably standardized scheduling protocol) into your Jabber client?
As far as I can see, the more "stuff" we add to the Jabber protocol,
the fewer choices we'll all have for fully-functional clients
(since a "fully-functional" Jabber client will actually have to be a
fully-functional video conferencing client, as well as a fully-functional
scheduling client, as well as a fully-functional group management client,
as well as, of course, a fully-functional IM client, and my experience
is that apps that try to do it all tend to sag in each particular area
when compared with specialized tools - and the current Jabber protocol
is rather hostile towards multiple concurrent clients (i.e., multiple
clients that are being _used_ at the same time, not just logged in to
the same account), so using one chat client and one scheduling client
isn't likely to be an attractive option).

Sorry about being so harsh,
Dave Cohen
