I should add a couple of points about PHP iCalendar:
1. For good or ill, it lacks an option to back-end into a database:
It's strictly a PHP front-end for displaying iCAL scheduling files.
In so doing, it can overlay multiple iCAL files onto a single calendar
2. It's _strictly_ a displaying utility, not an editing or coordinating
3. Back when I installed an old beta, still viewable as
http://linuxmafia.com/calendar/ , it lacked any way of automatically
supporting display of calendars within http://[hostname]/~[username]
per-user HTTP (public_html) trees. This is because it was written by
Mac OS X weenies^Wfans. That may (or may not) have changed, since then.
 I refer to the RFC2445 open standard, "iCalendar". See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICalendar and, for what it's worth,
"Scheduling" on http://linuxmafia.com/kb/Apps (No guarantee that's
useful; it's probably in need of updating.)
