Not at all. It is quite independent. Given the network in the middle, I can
actually work on the two sides independently. "is the client sending the
right stuff?" or "if I feed the server <this>, does it respond properly?"
Through incremental work, I can then start "really" hooking the two sides

Well, I'd be continuing to use the network in the middle. So we don't want
to break the use of ra_dav.

Fine here. "No big whoop"

It should also help with the RA API and with ripping out some of the XML
