Yes, I could do that for my specific setup. But it would be nice if this
stuff could "just work", so that things like Outlook calendar invites
can be directly exported to .ics.

I mean, those entries show up in the agenda, so I found it rather
surprising that they are completely ignored by the exporter. I think it
would make sense if the exporter also looked for time-stamps in the
properties. Maybe it could just take the first one it finds (which I
guess is what the agenda does?), and also give the user the ability to
configure which properties to look at (or maybe an exclude option).
