Yes, I recently modified the XML file of iSync () to handle the
Siemens SK65 properly. Was just changing 2 or 3 lines.
I have not modified the icon but that would only have been another
one plus providing a TIFF image file.

The QuantumSTEP approach is different - by providing its own
SyncServices.framework and a special
sync application it will sync all data types supported on a Mac - and
is not limited by/to SyncML.
