I think I'd write a simple AppleScript to do the splitting..  Create the new calendars, and then write the script to take events between the time frames and push them into the new calendars.. once you filled up one move onto the next one.  Assuming you're using a Mac of course! :)

svn info

inside the calendarserver directory where you checked out the code, be careful about just pulling latest revisions from trunk, as there are numerous changes and it doesn't necessarily work! :P
