This sounds really interesting. I know that there are already
applications like dates or GPE-calendar for the N770 but both
don't fit my needs. Since my idea was to write some sort of
PIM suite specially for the 770 in the near future, maybe we
should join efforts.

I have written software for the 770 in C (Ogg Vorbis Player) and Python
(Obscura Photo Manager) and have to say that Python wins for big
applications, IMHO. Development is much faster and the code usually
more clear and stable than with C. So I'd vote for Python.

One of my first opensource projects was the desktop calendar gDeskCal
(http://www.pycage.de/#gdeskcal), so I have some experience with reading
iCalendar files.

Sure, why not? :)
