Now my situation changes: I have a mac. So I open up ical, import my feed, import julia's google calendar feed, and everything just works . The reason this all worked is that google advertised support of someone else's open format, ical, so that when I wanted google calendar support that's what I implemented. If they had instead chosen to write their own format or something, I would have needed to start all over to get ical integration and might never have taken the time.
 Actually, it doesn't. I hadn't implemented all-day events properly, so I had to tweak my feed generation scripts.
