I was planning on trying to find some time to look at the code and read
some RFCs before I brought this up, but has anybody thought about hooking
a native CalDAV interface into Cyrus?
Admittedly, I haven't put any real thought into it so far, other than that
it would be incredibly useful. I'm thinking a native CalDAV interface for
remote clients ("calendard"), message processing via LMTP to inject ics
attachments through a calendar extension to SIEVE, calendar data exported
via CalDAV or via imap through an alternate mailbox (calendar/username
being the default calendar / INBOX equivalent,
calendar/username/calendarname for alternate calendars).
