Yeah - I just didn't mention the distinction since I thought it would
just meddle up things more.

We _should_ use a different function for creating the WebDAV date and
parsing it, especially after there's interoperation with other WebDAV
clients which might not send dates exactly in the format we expect
them to send it. It would also isolate the stringified format on the
repository and the client side from each other and hence alleviate
compatibility problems. If this is done, the whole time to string
conversion can be a simple number printed and parsing can be just
atoll() for example.
