SyncML on Freerunner

I had the same suggestion.

I am using SyncML and funambol-server with different phones (and 
clients) - so with SyncML-support it would be possible to sync all 
contacts/appointments with Freerunner also.

I am no expert in this area but IMHO SyncML is a reliable standard for 
sync of contacts and appointments and funambol is GPL (?!) so I was 
astonished about the plans to develop an own server for this...

Kind regards,
