Webdav Sync Progress Info

I have a feature request for the newest version of Davdroid. In versions <1.0 , the app reported the last sync date and time so that you could tell when the last successful sync completed. When i would manually start a sync, I could just wait for the last sync time to be updated so I knew that it finished properly. With the new version, it only has a popup that lets you the sync started. There is no last completed sync info anymore. If my Webdav server is having a problem and the sync fails, Davdroid has no way of letting me know that the sync failed. Plus, it was nice to see when the last sync was completed so i could check the last time the background sync completed.
I guess i am asking for the last sync date and time field to come back. It was really useful.
Unfortunately, Android doesn’t provide a possibility for apps to query the last sync time. In previous versions, the “Manage accounts” popup started the same activity as you can see in (Android) Settings / Accounts / DAVdroid.

DAVdroid always shows error notifications on hard errors (i.e. always except for connection problems).
