Is there interest in iCal [RFC 2445] for Ruby?

I just searched RAA and couldn’t find anything (quickly) that looked
to implement iCAL [RFC 2445] … and I’ve been working on a set of
libraries in native Ruby that will handle it.

Is there general interest in this? Is anyone else also working on such
an effort?

Not worked on it but have interest as well.

Apple just released their iCal application (for OS X) which uses
iCalendar [RFC 2445] format for exchanging calendar entries.

Doing quick research brought me to this page:
http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/calsch-charter.html

And the XML format for iCalendar is particularly interesting:
http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-calsch-many-xcal-02.txt

I think that ultimately the XML format is a better idea…since
everything else is headed XML.
