I'm currently looking into bedework now- it seems ideal, but getting
tomcat to work with apache is becoming a challenge. I'm using mod_jk but
it doesn't appear to be cooperating yet.

What is your experience in building apache modules? The problem is
mainly in the mod_dav_acl module which needs xattr.h. I'm wondering if
we can "borrow" the headers from another source.

I haven't checked zimbra or cosmo properly yet, but at first glance it
appeared they didn't quite have what I wanted.
