Besides the fact that I personnaly think that iCal is a quite poor method to share calendars (only an opinion - I could develop it - no flaming at all - I sware) ...

On a project I'm managing I would like to implement Thunderbird and Sunbird as a replacement for an Outlook/Netscape installed base. There's only 1 drawback but it's a major one : lack of wCap support. It is definitely needed for the project and that alone could lead the firm to adopt a full MS solution for client (There is a wCap plugin for Outlook) and even for servers.

I'm talking about 1900 mail clients and the related servers.

Is there any wCap plugin developed somewhere ? Would it be hard to add that support to Mozilla Calendar or Sunbird ? How hard would it be and how long would it take ? Any other idea ?

Thank you in advance.
