There are two items going on here:

1) the ACL model (or capabilities or whatever) *model* used by the server
2) how to marshal changes to the ACL data over the wire

We use WebDAV for marshalling over the wire. When we support ACLs in SVN,
then we'll use the WebDAV ACL mechanisms.

Note that the ACL extensions have gone through IETF Last Call. There ought
to be an RFC by the end of the year.
