Google CalDAV background sync'ing?

Google CalDAV background sync'ing?

I currently use MobileMe to sync my calendars between my Macs and iPhone. I'm thinking about switching to Google's CalDAV, but I'm not sure if the calendars will be updated if iCal on my Mac or the calendar app on my iPhone isn't running. In other words, will it do background sync'ing?

No, CalDAV in iCal requires you to open the application for it to sync.

"Don't know if anyone's still bothered but one option (which I've just done, because I couldn't find any true background sync options) is to remove iCal's dock icon (Dock Dodger), and set it as a startup item.

I've combined this with QuickCal (awesome) and the Google Calendar widget, so I never have to open iCal :-)"
