As mentioned in my other mail a Kolab VFS driver exists.

>      * upload any file into any of a set of (non-hierarchical) folders
>      * assign 'pending'/'in progress'/'resolved' state
>      * assign category (Horde-operated category management is used)
>      * assign tags
>      * encrypt symmetrically via password
>      * search for and filter list of files by somesuch criteria
>      * view or download files
> Perhaps some sort of API docs shall follow some day.
