That's probably because of my C background !

Ok, I'm almost convinced. How am I supposed to deliver the needed code
for SimpleAgenda users ? Do you think I should copy NGCards and it's
dependencies (by the way, what are NGExtensions, EOControl and DOM in
GNUmakefile.preamble ?) in SimpleAgenda source tree or do you package
NGCards as an idependant library ?

Well, that's probably not a good idea, it will hurt your eyes !

I started this project using ChronographerSource for it's Date and
Appointment classes. Later I switched to libical and change the Date
class to use the libical date struct internaly.

Only simple recurrences are handled in SimpleAgenda as of now (daily,
weekly, monthly, yearly, for ever or until a certain date).
