Making task to event and vice versa could I suppose have its uses, but imho not worth the code.

HOWEVER, I am intrigued by priority and status in general. I edit my iCal files with Rainlendar (Win/Lin), KOrganizer (Lin), Sunbird (Win), MyPhoneExplorer (Win/SE). Rainlendar appears not to support PRIORITY and STATUS for VEVENTs. But both Korganizer and Sunbird adds such iCal fields when VEVENTs are edited.
I considered this quite carefully, but decided it did not matter. Especially as I suspect this disappears in most portable units (phones). Therefore I decided to categorise differently:
1) using multiple calendars and
2) making a CATEGORY called canceled (and changed the skin to display this in gray - didn't figure out the strikeout set to underline in Shadow4).
Which is why I also would NOT put including STATUS/PRIORITY on a suggestions list, at least not on a priority one (supported by iCal or not). There is something to be said for the lowest common denominator - much easier to keep clean when it works in all apps.
However, I would like to know whether anyone else has a general "policy" on this. At some point I will get all of my office to change from Sunbird to Rainlendar, and I would like to know if anyone has a strong opinion on how to do this.
