Public Service Announcement - iCal Syncing Sucks

Lars-Erik Dahle dropped me a line noting that there is apparently no way to get 's (version 2.0) to sync calendars more than eight weeks in advance to a mobile phone, and he's been looking for a way around that (apparently arbitrary) limitation for a while now. And I quote -

Will we just have to resort to the average user’s favourite mode of problem-solving and wait until decides to fix it?

Having temporarily gone back to my this Monday (as a way to avoid undue distraction from my for a few days when I really need to, literally, ) and having my calendar on an server, I've been syncing its calendar via my Windows laptop, but this kind of thing irks me a bit.

Not liking that much (i.e., I loathe it and don't use it, period), I never came up against that limitation myself, and digging around yielded only this outdated hint, which has enough substance to make it plain that this was possible in the past.

I've yet to dig around in 2.0's innards, but any pointers towards solving this are welcome - drop me a line or post a comment if you have any insights.
