There have been multiple solutions for this already. OpenSync,
SyncEvolution, GNOMEPilot, Conduits, [etc]. Part of these arent fully
there. Your project looks to me like an another new project in that
direction. New project is good, but its better to look at existing
frameworks and see how you can fill the gaps to make it the best. I
would suggest to read about these, ping those individual maintainers on
the details and propose a solution, that would be widely accepted.
