Kronolith currently supports recurring events that follow a clear 
repetition rule (e.g. weekly or bi-weekly), and exceptions to those 
rules, which allows for quite complicated types of repeating events 
already when used in combination. These kind of recurring events can 
be exported and imported to and from ICS files using RRULE statements.

It would be nice if Kronolith and Horde_Date were to also support 
recurring events that do not follow a clear repetition rule as well. 
Sometimes there are series of events that do not follow a clear scheme.

Also, support for arbitrary recurring events would allow to import ICS 
files that use RDATE to define recurring events. Currently, repeating 
dates in ICS files that were defined via RDATE are silently dropped 
upon import. Lotus Notes is known for generating ICS files with RDATE 
statements. Kronolith users dealing with Notes users may get into 
trouble because they miss repeating events they were invited to.
