I'd not upgraded or tested because I'd not spotted the new release. Also
we are in a freeze :-P

I put the patches in partly because Patrick's bug report seemed to have
stagnated and partly because he understated the importance of the
feature (if using autodiscovery by email, if you do not strip the domain
then it uses your email address as your username throughout including
the calendar path - this makes it useless).

Patrick and I will look at the migrating to the v2 code instead.

I will ask for permission to upgrade to 1.1.4 in the freeze. I really
don't like the suggested path of installing 1.1.4, converting your
collections, then upgrading to 2.x.x. Hopefully, I've misunderstood the
docs and you can also use a script provided with 2.x.x to migrate
without going through the intermediate step.
