no.

subversion's WebDAV support is not complete. we only support (at the
moment) enough webdav to make subversion work. it is a happy
coincidence that this lets other DAV clients (web folders, os x's
finder, etc) read our repository. at some point (post 1.0), subversion
will be enhanced so that it is a full WebDAV/DeltaV server, but for now
it only somewhat works.

so unfortunately, even if Web Folders did support DeltaV, it probably
wouldn't work.
