Really?  I did my testing with our Exchange guy, and I got a text/calendar
part in the standardized format from him.

That, I do not know.  I'm not part of the Exchange realm, so it may be
because the Exchange server in question knows I'm an external user, so it
always sends me a text/calendar part.

Weeeelll ... maybe?  I mean, parsing the text/calendar file isn't a
problem.  But googlecl doesn't behave like you'd expect.  The examples
are all of the form:

% googlecl calendar add "Lunch with Jim at noon tomorrow".

You can probably make it work most of the time, but it's not going
to be wonderful.
