that should be no problem and will definitely namespace two other
folder types that I'll introduce soon.
Concerning the "Preferences" I'm hesitating though: Why shouldn't
Kontact for example be able to store configuration options in there
The format is really not that restrictet. After all it just defines
that you have a "prefs" container that can hold a multiple number of
"pref" nodes, each having string content. This should provide all
necessary means for a client to save its configuration on the server.
And I wouldn't mind if I could do that with contact so that I don't
have to configure each installation on its own.
So I feel this does not have to be Horde specific.
If the other client devs are certain that they won't ever use this
format I can of course make it Horde specific.
