That could be done easily enough.  Let me know when you are ready to
start hacking away at this and I'll do what I can to help.  It will
probably take a custom module to get that output--though I might be
able to get it to work with logging...  At most, it's probably just
adding one calendar form feature.  ZAP is pretty much setup for
extensible modules, though I do need help with one part to make it
fully automatic.
