I'd like to take a crack at it. I'm familiar with Python LDAP  
programming, not so much with the calendar server's source (although  
I have been using it for several months now). I'm also interested in  
the potential of using other LDAP directories as authentication  

I can see that I have to implement the methods in  
twistedcaldav.directory.directory; anyplace else I should look to get
