WebDAV clients will be supported until at least Subversion 2.0 arrives
because we won't break compatibility with any existing features until
the Subversion 2.0 release. Any Subversion 1.x server must speak WebDAV
due to this compatibility policy.

So far, there are no plans whatsoever to jump to version 2.0. And even
if we did, dropping support for old features is merely an option at that
point. So WebDAV support might stay alive even in Subversion 2.0 and later.
