Just as with all of YUI, the calendar component is extremely flexible
with a robust API exposed -- you can use as a date selector or
otherwise. I used YUI calendar for a client who wanted to show
available appointments based on user search criteria and parameters of
a given appointment (i.e., time required, resources required, etc.).
This was nearly a year ago, and they have made much progress since.

The API is very clear, very flexible, very well thought out. There is
no doubt it would work for your friend's problem.

Yes, but your friend would need to write code to retrieve the XML,
walk the tree, and translate the XML to API calls (would be relatively
simple in this case)
