Well, Chaperon was going to be my suggestion, but you beat me to it.
There is an example at 'forrest seed site' and there are other examples
at the Cocoon Samples (you need a local Cocoon to see them). There
is of course the website for further info.

There may be another possibility: Cocoon also has the SLOP parser -
Simple Line-Oriented Parser. However, i cannot see the ical examples
that you referenced - they may be too complex for SLOP.
