well, if we use VJOURNAL, you can just use libical for now as the
parser, since it already should support VJOURNAL.

Also, we talked about this on IRC, and using VJOURNAL would allow us to
provide a journal/blog component, with support for even accessing your
online blog. VJOURNAL seems to work for notes also, so implementing it
once only would add support for both things, notes, and journal/blog.
