Can we remove DAV-props/WC-props from the code now?

It would be awesome if we can now completely remove the code supporting 'DAV props' aka 'WC props' in the client side, if it is no longer needed there.

I know little about it myself, but on IRC, Bert said [1]:

  "I would hope we can ignore WC/DAV props. And if somebody suggests it I would be +1 on removing them now completely from our client. (The skelta update in serf for old style servers makes them unnecessary).

I think the reason to keep them was serf without http v2, but that should be fixed.
Using a subversion 1.0 server (pre skelta) would get slower, but I don't think anybody cares about that.

It still works ok.

The repository diff already makes sure dav props won't show up during merge. (I think since 1.7)

Dav props should nowdays only be written by the update editor, and read by some callback api that is initialized with ra sessions.
