Ah, now I see it.  Couldn't see the tree for the forest. :)

This would be nice, if possible.  We've been working with Davical and, 
more recently, OwnCloud, for ourselves and considering what to promote 
to our clients (mostly Open Systems or Windows based) and each have 
their short comings.  Davical seems pretty robust, but the management 
GUI is not very friendly.  OwnCloud feels less robust, but is rapidly 
developing (which brings its own share of "movign target" problems).  
This is not meant to disparage either of these packages, but rather to 
express  the challenges we see in bringing them to a broader audience.

Thanks again for your work!
