I have been working on this over the last couple of months (since I got
an Android phone...) and have a functional sync script in python. It's
very much a work in progress. I've been meaning to put it up on GitHub,
and will do soon. Meanwhile, here's the script and an example config
file (save as ~/.gsyncrc and chmod 600).

At the moment synchronising back from Google is manual: i.e. the script
outputs events that have been added, changed or deleted in remind
format and waits for the user to deal with these. I plan to add support
to directly alter the remind files in future.

It's still buggy and will probably eat kittens alive - please use a
test account first. And Google behaves strangely sometimes...
