Run https:// instead of http://, and you'll bypass the proxy server completely,
thus making WebDAV work just fine. The only time this workaround isn't possible
is the very small number of sites which block https:// traffic (yes, stupid I
know, but not unheard of). Those sites may be able to use svn+ssh:// instead,
but if they are blocking secure traffic of one kind (as a simpleminded security
measure possibly), then they are likely to block others.
