Scribe groupware functionality is back!

So many years ago Scribe had some ganky groupware functionality that never really went anywhere. These days things are done a little differently. There is a growing number of webdav based platforms that enable shared contacts and calendars. So in light of that I've been adding webdav support into Scribe. Partly because I'm sick of having different sets of calendars and contacts on different computers and because I think the user base would find it useful.

In the next release you'll be able to go into File -> Manage Mail Stores, click on Create Mail Store -> Webdav Remote Folders and configure URLs, username and password. This will then render as a folder in the main window with "Contacts" and "Calendar" sub-folders. Containing vCards and vCal objects that you can edit just like native Scribe objects. They also appear in all the same places in the UI as native objects, like the mail window address browser bar and the calendar view (add the folder to the source list if needed).

At the moment there is no caching of objects so they load each time over the network. But in the future I'll add caching like the IMAP implementation for offline operation.

And potentially other types of objects can be stored in webdav folders, like filters, groups, mail etc. But we'll cross that bridge later. Walk before run yada yada.
