Orage - repeating event question

Is there any way of clearing all previous occurrences and the current
occurrence of a repeating event in Orage?

If you can't do this then it makes repeating events fairly useless.

I use repeating events to remind myself about company VAT returns, tax
(PAYE) returns, etc.  So I get a warning a few days before the event
and the warning stays until I actually do something about it.  However
I then need to clear the current (next upcoming) occurrence of the
event so that in 3 months time (or whatever) I get reminded again.

It would be the same with something as simple as a brithday.  You want a
reminder a few days before which keeps 'live' until you send a card (or
something) and clear the reminder.  ... but then you want the reminder
again next year, that's the whole point of repeating reminders.

... and it can be done, the ReminderFox add-on for Firefox manages to do
it perfectly well.  I'd just like to use Orage instead because it has
other parts that I prefer.
