Thanks for the tip.

My post is not just about getting WebDAV working via a proxy but the main
point of my post was to extend Subversion to give end-users and third party
software developers more freedom of choice and at the same time extend the
subversions supported web server platforms.

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.
