Re: Creating users resource folders without Kontact - is it possible?

A little while ago I asked if it was possible to create users resource
folders (esp for contacts and calendars) without using Kontact.
This is for a server (running Debian squeeze) which I have inherited.
I've discovered that the kolab server was originally installed using the
'native' debian packages (i.e. apt-get, not openpkg). This is why the
web-client isn't creating the folders for me - it's just a normal
installation of horde, not the one that comes with kolab (openpkg version).
So, two questions:
1. Has anyone had any experience installing the OpenPkg version Kolab
over the top of the experimental Debian packages? It seems like it might
be a very tricky exercise and I'm not sure I have the time, resources or
enough knowledge about kolab to try it.
2. Can I write, or is there already a script, that will create the
resource folders for users for me?
I'm guessing it's possible because Bernhard Reiter wrote:

All of my users access their mail and calendars using thunderbird /
lightning both in the office and on their laptops (outside the office).
So fixing the web-client isn't that important at the moment.
