It could be better ... 1.8/2.0 could (non-)silently ignore XML sub-trees that
they did not understand.  Then, 2.2 could emit both the old (FreqSpec) and
new (Recurrence) structures and the files would be backward-compatible.  Of
course, it'd be custom, new code to generate a FreqSpec from a Recurrence,
and there are features of the Recurrence that can't be expressed in a
FreqSpec, but only if used could 2.2 refuse to save in pre-2.2 format.

Unfortunately, our XML error handling sucks.
