 Small wish: could iCalServer set the 'component' property in resource
 content-types? This would make in-place filtering of PROPFIND results
  Content-Type:text/calendar; charset=UTF-8; component=vevent

 In Outlook we need to map a single calendar collection to two (or three)
 Outlook folders, eg "Calendar (Events)" and "Calendar (Tasks)". In Outlook
 each folder has a distinct type (its either tasks or events, never both).

 So when we do a PROPFIND on a CalDAV calendar which supports both
 (calendar-component-set: VEVENT+VTODO), tasks and events (and journals
 ...), we currently just get the generic text/calendar type. We need to
 fetch the content to decide whether the item is relevant or not for a
 specific Outlook folder type.
 If the server would report the contained component-type, we could avoid
 that annoyingly hard work ;-)


 PS: obviously the client can't (and shouldn't) rely on that parameter, but
 its a relevant optimization.
