Is there anyway you could elaborate on what you mean here? Firstly,  
what would be gained by doing what you are describing as opposed to  
simply setting up access to the other user's calendars without using  
the delegates feature? Are you saying to basically figure out what the  
URL would be for where the owner's/principal's calendar resides, and  
enter this into ICal? Could one do this without knowing the other  
user's user/pass? Could you provide me with an example?

Could you dumb this down a little? So sorry to have to ask this :)
