Erminig is relatively new and has not received a lot of testing (from
what I can see).  I've used it several times so far and besides the
missing proxy support (which would come from one of the underlying
components it depends on) it seems to work well.

I could never get OpenSync to work properly without crashing
Evolution.  Erminig seems to work well, and does a two-way sync,
critical for me, as well as supporting multiple calendars.  I may end
up trying to code in some proxy support because that would be a
"killer app" for me to be able to maintain my schedule in Google
Calendar and have a local, synced copy on the n800.
