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[1] 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.

[1] 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.)
