[Om2009] a community effort

Good news to hear about all the progress on opimd.
We have been working on a PIM synchronization tool named PISI for a while. I think, with all the progress here we should start integrating it with opimd; for now mainly contacts and calendar information.
Where could I find more information about the possible APIs? I guess, the best way would be to access the persistence backend directly; should the SQLite backend be the preferred one here? If, where could I get more information from about it ... and if not; which way - do you think - should be the preferred one to access / add / modify pim information in opimd.
Any source of information besides this one here (http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Opimd)?
Thx in advance for any comments; greetings
