Yeah, I think that's the fundamental problem here. If it's successful,
lots of people are going to need write access. The idea is basically
that all Fedora project groups will be able to have a calendar where
they can list all their events. The number of people who are going to
need write access in a successful calendar system is so large that using
a semi-hack job system isn't likely to work.

It's still an idea, though. but at this point we should probably be
discussing on infrastructure list, anyway.
