I do not know much background of OAuth, (to be honest, none at all),
thus this is rather a question than answer: CalDAV is using libsoup to
connect to the Google's calendar server and what you are dealing with is
that you do not know how to tell CalDAV to use OAuth and how to pass it
from the UI part to the backend, supposing the libsoup is capable of
this OAuth feature?

If so, then that might be pretty simple with EClient (on actual git
master), just do:
a) in e-client-utils.c::e_credentials_authenticate_helper check for
   which account you are asking credentials and set some key in
   ECredentials to indicate you are offering OAuth "token"
b) in CalDAV backend, in authenticate_user handler, check for the key
   from a) and pass either user/password or OAuth to libsoup, based on
   its presence.

	Hope that helps,
