I agree that for the things we implement we stick to the spec as closely
as possible. But I think we will not necessarily want to implement all
the features at this time. For instance for COPY and MOVE I don't want
to start to implement all the request options and response reports
before we have a good way of doing those things.

One of the reasons I say this is because we are already running into the
limits of our current environment. And before we can really continue we
will have to think about how we can solve those issues. But I think you
were already hinting towards that.

For me, the proof of concept phase is almost over, i.e. I am convinced
that building and maintaining a DAV server on top of Cocoon is not only
doable it's a very nice fit too. We need to start to take a step back
and compare our experiences and come up with a design so that we can
start implementing things such as locking, and do PROPFIND, PROPPATCH,
MOVE and COPY properly.
