Yes.  It is used by libkcal though; it is a replacement for the old
internal version of libical.  Trust me; it's much better this way--the old
integrated libical had many bugs, including random changing of Korganizer
appointment times.

The resources that use them *should* shut down automatically when those
libraries are not detected.  If this does not occur, let me know and I
will fix it ASAP.

Look for the .tar.gz file--it is in that list somewhere.

Yes it would.  However, security certificates cost money.  Lots of it. 
Unless someone would like to donate a site-wide certificate for
*, I don't think that will change. ;-)
