Well, I see three ways of proceeding, at this point:

1. Start work on a new libical now, whether built on libversit or 
from scratch.
2. Defer the work on the new format for the "next-generation" 
gnome-pim (as part of the new PIM/messaging app).
3. Do #2, while inserting hacks in gnome-pim to handle things like 
unlimited alarms.  (I think I know how I could do that, but it's a 
question of whether it's worth the effort just to cobble support onto 
vCalendar-format files.  OTOH, if we're going to continue to support 
both formats indefinitely, maybe it pays to use a gnome-pim extension 
to vCal so that we can implement the same feature set over both file 

I happen to have some extra time this week, so it would be great if 
we can figure out how we want to proceed in the relative short term.  
But it's obviously not essential...
