I'm fine with adding it and ignoring it in Kontact, but that's probably not
what we want for full interoperability.

The real question is whether we need to change korganizer's invitation handling
or not. But I don't know enough about korganizer's invitation handling AND about
Outlook's invitation handling to provide any useful input.

This is even more detailed, more than Joon requested, so I'm guessing
Outlook (or the connector) can't do that?

Well, but we can't just make up algorithms as we want here, if this
is built into Outlook, can we?

Asking a question about outlook's owner-appointment-id on kdepim?
Doesn't look like the right place to me.
I'm not on kolab-devel at the moment; should I be? (we really have too many lists...)
