iCal API for OSX

I really like the way iCal looks as a desktop calendar app. the gui is pleasant and navigating is simple enough. The only part that I have never liked is creating/editing (repeating) events. I find the process of navigating to a date, clicking/dragging(which I find often can't get the precise time interval), then editing the event; which is fairly fast except for making the event repeat(because it requires clicking dragging and drop-down menus).

Seriously, nothing grinds my gears more than switching repeatedly between typing and clicking, and drop-down menus that can't be selected by tabbing. But there is hope.

I recently found the fairly thorough API that apple generously gave developers for interacting with iCal. I'm really psyched to start using it as I learn more about Xcode and Objective C. Although i'm curious if the framework could still be used in RubyCocoa; which I would like to use more often than I do.
