Or anything else. How do you propose to deal with this in your
home-grown solution? What about when you change phones and the new one
isn't exactly the same as the old one? These issues are inherent in the
nature of the problem. The best way to deal with them is via a
standardized markup language, i.e. SyncML or similar. To take your
example: SYncML doesn't define specific task categories, so if your
various devices aren't understanding each other the problem is with
their use of SyncML, not with the language itself.

BTW, have you looked at OpenSync?
