This is about right.  Bedework is unsuitable for my needs.  It's too
big of a framework.  Very intensive.  The developers say it requires
its own dedicated server, which is why it's not offered by webhosting
companies.  There's no such thing as a server that runs Bedework for
multiple clients, and from what I've read, I don't exactly want to run
it on my desktop machine.  Sigh.  It does look like a conquer the
world type application though.  Very impressive, but you hit the nail
squarely on the head with the above paragraph.

I looked into mod_caldav.  The documentation is spotty, but from what
I can tell, it requires a patched Apache server?!?  I've seen messages
of people who were compiling Apache to run mod_caldav, and that looks
like a whole can of worms too.

I started to look into the Ubuntu calendarserver package.  Still
trying to figure out how to set it up and whatnot; documentation
sucks, but I think it might be the most fruitful avenue to caldav out
of the three options I've looked at so far.
