And looks like you did a thorough job at that; thanks!

Sometimes I commit an XFail test that I have no immediate intention to
work on myself; for example, just last week I committed two XFail tests
which arrived as patch submissions. There are other legitimate reasons
for adding XFail tests without immediatley working on a fix, I believe.

Old bug. May not have an issue associated with it. I'll have a look,
but it shouldn't block 1.7.0.

These two fail for the same reason --- something to do with
pre-revprop-change hooks over ra_dav. In any case, feel free to cross
#26 off your list; I'm sure it will be fixed as soon as #12 is.
