Sure. We don't support any type of vfs share yet though. We only support
iCal files on web servers for the time being. Hopefully there will be a
more general VFS back-end for 2.2, but there are no guarantees yet.

It would work even better if it support HTTP 401 authentication, instead
of re-directing to a web form. The "webcal" protocol is irrelevant
really, since webcal is essentially just HTTP with a different protocol
type specified in the URL instead of HTTP. There's nothing special about
what webcal does, aside from making it easier to register a handler for,
in some instances.

Alternatively, a bounty for a Bugzilla Tasks back-end is available for
completion and inclusion in 2.2, I believe. So, you could just do that,
instead, if you want.
