csa_ (calendar services) functions

I've been thrilled to find that Solaris 2.5 includes
an API for calendar services.  I've been using a
hacked version of cm_lookup to provide HTTP access to
calendars for quite awhile.  Although it's darn handy,
it leaves a lot to desire.

So...I'm cruising through all of the docs I can find
for csa_ functions and I keep running across

The main thing that I want to do is allow composite

I wish you loads of luck trying to make heads or tails
of the existing CSA documentation, without the calendar
manager source handy 8^(  I used it to create a little
daemon that fires off your reminders even though calendar
manager isn't running; email me if you want a copy.
