You should be able to use the peer method.

Have you tried dropping privileges in your daemon script (i.e. running with sudo), so that caldavd never starts as root in the first place, rather than specifying a UID to it?  I may be forgetting something, but I don't believe it should need root privileges for anything on debian.
