I am highly interested in the complete design of such an extension; I am 
still looking forward to use Cocoon/WebDAV as a basis for personalized 
virtual harddisks, eg. as personal work environments, allowing every 
user to personalize their view on the content structure. Yet trying to 
extend Cocoon to be a solid designed basis for a virtual WebDAV storage 
which contains dynamically-generated contents gave me some major headaches.

Issues I came across were things like the requirement of browsability of 
directories (called collections in WebDAV), adequate ways to allow for 
generation and filtering of directory "browse-lists" or proper 
integration into the sitemap without allowing "ooops-its-no-more-WebDAV" 
misconfigurations; it was then when I started drooling for the sitemap 
componentization and being able to mount sub-"sitemaps" based on other

Basically, when you have managed to provide WebDAV services via Cocoon 
in a clean manner, then versioning is not that hard anymore; you'd still 
have to think about versioning-capable storage backends.
