[Evolution] Remote Calendar store

I fired up the new beta of Evolution, and I was at first glance very
excited to see that you can change the default folder to be a remote
calendar.  My first thought was, "Wow, did they somehow make it so you
can store calendar data in an IMAP store?  That's too cool."

Of course, this isn't the case.  But a thought occured to me: why not? 
If we don't want to create a specialized server for
contacts/tasks/calendaring, would it be possible to layer those things
on top of IMAP, so at least it would be possible to keep my 3 different
copies of Evo synchronized?  Is something like that feasible?

Of course, the real nice solution would be to create an Exchange-like
OSS backend that Evolution can integrate with, but that's much easier
said than done.
