I was thinking specifically regarding the choice between Cocoon and 
Slide as a WebDAV server, but I think Slide is the better choice over 
mod_dav/catacomb as well. Simply because it supports more WebDAV (DACL, 
Binding) in a more flexible way. It has an interception mechanism which 
I currently use to publish cache invalidation events to a JMS topic 
with. It has a pluggable storage system that allows you to plugin a 
custom store. There is a lively community actively implementing the 
latest WebDAV specifications.
