In the subversion book it talkes about using webdav file systems in an office environment, to version all important files.I really want to implement something like this were I work, as we really cannot have any client realated information lost. The caveat is that if a user uses word to open files on the webdav files it will create temporary files, that will stick around to eternity. I have two possible solutions in mind, and I was after some feedback as to if either of them will actually work:
2) User mod_rewrite to redirect all temp file requests to a seperate non-versioned filesystem. This is the one I prefer, because it will be interesting to set up, but I am not sure if it will work. The issues I see are:

I doubt that the second approach will work because if the Office or other application does a list to look for "locking" files, it won't see them if you are transparently redirecting URLs with certain wildcards. So I'm guessing that breaking the ability to list files would also break the ability for the applications to work properly.
