[EventCalendar] Re: EventCalendar Digest, Vol 36, Issue 5

I would definitely like to see a new branch of this plugin.  I could likely 
help with documentation and a bit of testing but it would just be as I have 
time.  I don't have a lot of php knowledge but I'm not bad at figuring out 
where problems are.
