While that may be true, in the meantime the software doesn't exist and
the features that Google Calendar offers are nice to have.

If you want to host it yourself, maybe one of the free/open source PHP
web calendar tools would serve.  Since Google Calendar can export in
vCal / iCal format you can import it into any calendaring tool that
suits your fancy.

How about this view: I don't live in a tent whilst saving up the money
for the down payment to buy a house.  I rent one.  Does the analogy
hold?  Maybe.

Anyway, use it or not - it's a resource I've offered in case anyone is
inclined to do so.
