How do I edit the notes section of iCal automatically using Applescript or anything else?

Simplified scenario: I have a text file called "blah.txt" with some text in it. I also have a To-Do item in iCal named "Blah". I'd like to be able to doubleclick something to make the contents of blah.txt appear in the notes section of the Blah to-do item.

-The real goal of this is to get my Getting Things Done lists synced across my Symbian phone, my laptop, and my desktop, and while iCal seems to be the only way to syncronize this information, it's not a particularly good place to enter my data in the first place.
-Any tool is fair game, not just Applescript
-Most of the variables above can be changed (I can move my lists into any format, for example), but I believe iCal is the only way to keep all my devices synced with the same information.
-Possible hint discovered on 43 folders google group: This php module apparently can interface with the iCal files extensively, and is used in some Konfabulator widgets: http://phpicalendar.sourceforge.net/
-May the force be with you
