/**
 * Interface for synchronously working providers on storing items,
 * e.g. storage, memory. All modifying commands return after the
 * modification has been performed.
 *
 * @note
 *   This interface is used in conjunction with changelog-based synchronization
 *   and additionally offers storing meta-data for items for this purpose.
 *   The meta data is stored as long as the corresponding items persist in
 *   the calendar and automatically cleanup up once the item is deleted from
 *   the calendar, but is not altered when an item is modified (modifyItem).
 *   Meta data can be fetched/stored per (master) item, i.e. if you need to
 *   store meta data for individual overridden items, you need to store it
 *   along with the master item's meta data.
 *   Finally, keep in mind that the meta data is "calendar local" and not
 *   automatically transferred when storing the item on another calISyncWriteCalendar.
