Judd would know more, but I doubt it would to be honest. pre_sync()
code can't talk to the palm, as it wouldn't have a socket descriptor
to talk over yet...

If I remember correctly, plugin_pre_sync() used to be called when
jpilot started, and I asked Judd to move it to be called just before
the sync. Calling it just before connecting to the palm would make
sense, yes.
