i looked at the drupal module and it seems to just generate atom
feeds. the java calendar syncing library uses the java google data
api, but all of the non-google code looks like C#. the sync calendar
to ipod program appears to just do this:

wget http://URL-of-icalfile.com -O Name-of-iCal
mv Name-of-iCal /path/to/iPod/Calendars
rm Name-of-iCal

and repeat for each calendar.. so it just uses ical and not gdata.
this is because google calendar offers an ical "private address" that
has a "magic cookie" in it so that it can be used without
authentication. the ipod is mounted as a disk and works with ical.
