I think that is beyond the scope of gncal. I think you are looking for
something like Crosswinds synchronize. As much as I would like to see a
tool like that I don't have time to write it. But, your suggestion of
making the CORBA interface handle that situation transparently is well
taken and I will try to include it :). I want to use this CORBA interface
to gncal to write a conduit for the Palm Pilot datebook.
