http upgrade (rfc 2817) support?

Hi All,
I've been looking at a long standing problem of proxied webdav access to
svn. In the case that the proxy<->client connection is over a secure channel
(https) but the proxy<->backend is plaintext (http) webdav fails because the
proxy rewrites the request URL as http. Referrals (generated by the backend
server) sent to the client are constructed as http:// instead of
https://and thus the configuration doesn't work.

With http upgrade support all urls start with http:// regardless of the
secure nature of the channel which should play nicer with webdav. The only
other solution I see is to use https between the proxy and backend webserver
which is not desirable in this case.

I came across an old thread asking about this topic [1] and it seemed to be
lost with, "it could be tricky."

Has there been any development or other expressed interest in this? If not,
are there better approaches to this proxy scenario?
