I haven't had time to take an in depth look at this stuff, although
the bits I have seen are quite nice. I will say that I'm VERY glad to
see Erik taking a look at this stuff, I've been of the opinion for a
while now (mostly since seeing what Justin did with ra_serf) that
ra_dav could be much nicer code if it had some attention, as opposed
to just letting it evolve over time and retain its various backwards
compatibility shims and hacks like we had done up to now, and Erik's
recent work seems to be proving that to truly be the case.
