Cool. Let's see what people have working and what can be done.

This is my main concern, up maintaining and so on.

BTW, if you have tips on using DAViCal I'd be happy to see them (I'm 
using Postfix/virtual), you can send them here or off-list.

Another person replied to me as well (off-list, and I think it's 
possible that the ML software doesn't "do it's thing properly" (reply-to 
uses the original sender and not the ML's address)) saying he uses 
Roundcube with Davical and Agendav which works well. For both of you, 
despite using only RC as the web interface, you need an extra bit 
(Agendav or InfCloud)... .

It would seem that all we're missing is CalDav client support for at 
least a one-solution web front.

Cheers and thanks for your replies,
