Well, I talked to Karen Stevenson last week, the author of CCK and
also to Earl Miles, the author of Views2. CCK/Views2 are the suggested
routes and on my test site on localhost I have it set up and working.
The only problem is that the rss feed appears to only show the next
event, not all future events in the occurrence.

However from a security perspective and a future upgrade path
perspective I believe CCK is the way to go and advocate using that.
I've asked around on the #drupal-support and #drupal channels but I
think event recurrences are not commonly used so am having trouble
getting help.

I will keep trying, I have a few more tricks up my sleeve. First I'll
set up a public test site to make it easier to get help.
