This functionality has just been committed to Subversion trunk and is
being tested for production by one of our committers in his company
environment. It will be part of 1.5, but you can benefit from it
earlier if you build and use our trunk code.

You will need Apache 2.2, APR 1.2.8 (newest release) and Subversion
trunk (aka 1.5-dev). See recent posts to the dev archive:

http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2006-12/0126.shtml

and see

http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/notes/webdav-proxy

for configuration.

HTH,

Erik.
