Which Maemo version are you using ? Maemo 5 (Fremantle) or Maemo 4
(Diablo) ? Do you have extras-devel enabled?

Attempting to install it on the Scratchbox (running Maemo 5) console
gives a clue:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  mcalendar: Depends: python-sqlite but it is not installable
             Depends: python-dateutil but it is not installable

Both broken dependencies do not exist in Maemo 5.

I haven't checked the Diablo package.

Also note that both packages are not part of the Python standard library.
