Provide CSOM and REST API for recurring calendar events

There is no obvious way to get details about a recurring calendar events through the CSOM or REST API.

When querying a calendar list only one item is returned for the calendar recurrence item. Only one field identifies this is a recurring item. the fOccurrence field is a boolean field.

When using the server side object model, properties are available to expand recurring calendar events to get the individual recurring items.

The only way to do this for client applications is to go back to using list.asmx which is not great and I'm not sure how long this will be supported.

Not having this makes the use of calendar lists in apps (SharePoint hosted, Display Templates and Client Side Rendering) useless.
