In my experience with Mozilla/Firefox/Sunbird and mod_dav, your calendar
program keeps a local copy of the entire calendar and can get updates
via DAV. I don't know whether it is a delta.

The options dialogue for Sunbird has the following text anotating the
"Publish changes automatically?" option: "For remote calendars, this
will download a new version before you add, edit, or delete an event.
It will then perform your action, and upload the new file to the server."

Also, for remote calendars, there is the context-menu item allowing you
to refresh remote calendars.

The there are about 150 bytes per calendar event, I believe.

Cheers...
Bruce
