Thinking about it, I suppose it isn't that insane or impractical.

If the binary representation changes if the software changes, you  
"just" need to embed a software version identifier in the etag? (eg  
the iCal generation framework version [A/B/C...]) That doesn't sound  
too hard / inappropriate.
