At some point soon we will remove the support for dual-fork ICS/XML
sharing from Chandler (after TBD numbers of users has migrated to
morsecode), but Chandler will always continue to be a CalDAV client
as well as a morsecode client.

Once we have removed support for dual-fork ICS/XML shares from
Chandler, from that point on handing Chandler a CalDAV URL (i.e., a
DAV collection of type "calendar") will cause Chandler to subscribe
as a CalDAV client, as I don't think there is a way for the client to
know that a given CalDAV collection *also* has a morsecode interface
to it, and what the URL would be without some intelligent "guessing"
on the client's part. If we need different behavior, this needs to
be spec'd out.
