If mod_dav (only supporting basic WebDAV) suits your functional needs it 
certainly is your best bet.

However since Slide has much more to offer and has matured a lot during 
the past months (and hopefully continues to do so), gathering experience 
with it and helping testing and further stabilizing is not the worst 
thing to do IMO :-)
