Just so BTW, there are some http proxy servers (even transparent ones, in DSL-
boxes, routers, and similar - eg. for traffic shaping) that don't understand
the DAV requests (that is easy to find, because of an error message) - and
I've already some that simply *hang* the connection on pipelined requests.

So, for that matter, using multiple connections instead of pipelining *might*
be better.
