Well, well, well.

It may be true that ra_dav currently is slow, but I think it's a bit of
a stretch to blame the base protocol for that. For instance, RFC3253
allows clients & servers to use custom REPORTs (und svn is using that),
so implementors *do* have the option to add extensions for performance
reasons.

I think talking about a concrete example would help...

Best regards, Julian
