This is good, we can finally change one single occurrence without having to 
send *two* iTip messages to attendees ( one adding a new incidence, and 
another changing the exception list of the original incidence ).

One invitation e-mail will be enough.

I would suggest to use the "recurrence-id" terminology to identify such 

"recurrence-id" is the name of this feature in the ical and iTip standards, 
and it's equal to the occurrence's dtstart.


	<recurrence-id> date1  </recurrence-id>
