In theory, yes. In practice it hasn't been tried and there are likely to
be few obstacles which may require some coding to resolve. Are you
looking at this as a user or a programmer?
A setup as client of a SyncML server could use the CalDAV/CardDAV
backends for its sources. Problem:
1. Only one set of credentials can be stored in the sync config.
SyncML and CalDAV/CardDAV server must share the same
username/password for this to work.
2. The CalDAV/CardDAV backends might not read these credentials
correctly. Currently they expect them in
"target-config@<context>" and I don't know whether the code
would pick them up from "funambol@default".
3. The "database" property of the CalDAV/CardDAV sources must be
set to the full URL of the collection. There's no support in
SyncEvolution for reporting valid URLs.
Points 1 and 2 might be solved by introducing a new feature: if the
current config name is "foo@bar", then the CalDAV/CardDAV sources could
retrieve their sync properties (syncURL, credentials) from
"target-config@bar" instead. Then credentials can be different for
SyncML and CalDAV/CardDAV.
