Support iCloud in Accounts explicitly

Apple's iCloud service uses IMAP for mail, CalDAV for calendar and CardDAV for contacts.

Since they're standards based services, it should be relatively easy to add these to a Jolla provided it supports those protocols (IMAP is there already, CalDAV and CardDAV coming soon hopefully).

In the past I've successfully used iCloud's IMAP and CalDAV services on my N9 by configuring each manually. The process of configuring these is not for the faint of heart.

For an example, here's how it's done on BB10 ([link to Blackberry.com KB])(http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/viewdocument.do;jsessionid=F01650B136BBF6C34FA59BB4E483124B?externalId=KB33812&sliceId=2&cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&noCount=true&ViewedDocsListHelper=com.kanisa.apps.common.BaseViewedDocsListHelperImpl)

This could be a whole lot easier with one signon account in the Accounts Settings similar to how you've one account setup for a Google account rather than making non-technical people type in lots of server addresses.
