Yes, because scraping screens is the right way to solve data
interchange problems in the year 2011.

Who needs things like native calendaring protocols or RSS or portable
data formats when you can scrape HTML like it's 1999!

The fact that you don't use a modern portable device that can't speak
CalDAV doesn't mean the rest of us need to suffer in the last century
with you. :)
