qtmoko calendar / google calendar

QTMoko is set to "New York" for the timezone. Google Claendar is set
to "Eastern Standard". The timezones should match. It may be that
Google Calendar does not preserve the timezone data in the ics file.
It may present the entries in UTC or something.

If there was a command-line option to just specify a time offset, I
think that would be enough for me.

If you would like a test google calendar / ics file let me know. I can
provide one.
