I also export the agenda as an ics file and then pre-process using Ruby
to make some changes on the ics file (mainly to remove some of the TODO
entries that I normally do not need on my Blackberry). There is a good
Ruby module for handling the iCalendar format

I then use a automator workflow to load the processed ics file into iCal
(I am using OS X) and sync normally to iCal using the synchronization
program that came with the Blackberry (PocketMac Sync Manager).

As a bonus, I get to sync the iCal entries automatically with Google
calendar as well.

I.e, the flow is:

+--------+ ics  +-------------+ ics   +--------------+
| Org    +------> Ruby        +-------> Automator    |
+--------+      +-------------+       +-------+------+
                                              | load
                +-------------+ sync  +-------v------+
                | PDA /Google <-------+    iCal      |
                +-------------+       +--------------+

This works pretty well - though the problem is that it is a one-way
street: from org files to the BB - and round trip changes are not yet

Also, this is a OS X oriented solution, but the automation can probably
be done on other platforms as well using equivalent scripting.
