hoping for a new neon release...

Hey Joe Orton,

I'm wondering if it's possible to get a new release of neon out the
door anytime soon... or at least in time for subversion 1.2. There
are two critical improvements I'm hoping for:

1. Karl Fogel tells me that neon's trunk has a new API which fixes the
"control-c not interrupting neon" bug, which I believe is currently
filed as svn issue 1709. This has been a very long-lived annoyance for
lots of users. (Even our customers have complained about it!)

2. I'm trying to teach ra_dav to issue LOCK and UNLOCK requests using
the nice pre-existing neon locking API. But the API doesn't allow me
to read or write custom headers in the request or response. I'd rather
not reimplement all the LOCK code (and XML parsing) manually; instead,
I was hoping that I could submit a patch to augment neon's API. I
guess it would be some sort of variant of ne_lock() and ne_unlock(),
one which allows access to either headers or the ne_request object.

Would you accept such a patch, Joe? (Assuming we worked out the
design, that is.)

Is there anything we can do to help get neon 0.25 out the door? Let us
know what we can do.

Many thanks!
