     calendarserver_manage_principals is a tool for accessing and manipulating information
     regarding principals on a Calendar Server.  Principals represent any form of actor that can
     access the server, such as users, groups, locations and resources.

     calendarserver_manage_principals should be run as a user with the same privileges as the
     Calendar Server itself, as it needs to read and write data that belongs to the server.
     calendarserver_manage_principals takes a list of principals as arguments and then performs
     the requested actions on each of the given principals.

     A principal may be specified as the principal's GUID. Alternatively, it may be specified in
     the form recordType:shortName, where recordType is a directory record type (eg.  users,
     groups, locations, resources) and shortName is the principal's short name.

     Actions to perform are specified via the options below.  Multiple actions may be given, and
     will be performed in the order given on each principal specified.
