Thanks Simon!

It's true that it wouldn't be too hard just to export an ics and get it
onto the server somehow. But I'd still like to use org-caldav, as it
allows for two-way syncing, and that gets more complex. I guess I'll
just poke around in org-caldav and see exactly what it's doing, and
figure out where I'm going wrong.
