I made a build-script for opensync because it was used by kitchensync of KDE4, 
which in turn requires version 0.3x of opensync. I haven't been able to test 
it so far, but I read on various sites, that opensync generally does not work 
that good (currently). The only problem I have encountered is, that barry's 
opensync-plugin does only compile with 0.2x.

I just had a quick look at opensync-0.22 and saw that they switched from 
autotools (0.2x) to cmake (0.3x), so making the build-script work for both is 

Personally, if 0.22 is the stable version and it really does work better, I 
have no objections on downgrading.

Any other opinions on that?
