You can ask any developer on any project to do anything you want, for
that matter :)

In that case, I would definitely follow up on the Tomboy mailing list.
 My impression based on the websites for snowy and tomboy are:
1. It sounds like Tomboy sync is not fully implemented yet.  Maybe in
a non-stable development version.
2. The gnome-snowy project is the backend for Tomboy's sync, and its
not stable yet.

So, give this feature some time.  Synchronization always ends up being
a tougher problem to solve than it sounds like.
