Do you actually use this feature? I would think "3rd Tuesday after Nov
12" is much more rare than the 5th Sunday of the month. Most calendaring
programs provide an "nth day of the month" feature.

To answer your question about why I want to restrict it to a calendar
month, it's because that's when the event is :)
