One of the participants at last week's Calconnect CalDAV interop had a 
davtool (<http://davtool.sourceforge.net/>) based scripting mechanism for 
running through all the test cases in the interop. That seemed to work very 
well and found several bugs in server implementations, including mine! I 
believe a process is in hand for making that tool publicly available.
