We could argue about that one. =)

Buggy transparent proxies almost certainly break WebDAV. For example, I can't
commit to any WebDAV repositories from my apartment on campus because the
campus 'geniuses' installed a buggy transparent proxy that can't be
routed-around that doesn't know what to do with REPORT/MERGE/etc. I have to
use SSL here in order to do anything which is very, very annoying. -- justin
