I'll have to have a closer look at this when I have more time....

I'm wondering if there is anything coming in future client software that
might make it possible for a user to easily choose a city/country for their

Currently any methods of specifying a city in iCal clients that I have seen
or thought of seem to be a dodgy workarounds involving custom categories or
