As another data point, I just went through the process of evaluating
slide.  The installation went fine but I was not able to get it to
interoperate with any client other than the slide command line
client.  In particular, I simply wasn't able to get Windows XP to
work with slide which, unfortunately, was a must for me.

I simply couldn't get the cocoon slide block to work.

I finally implemented a solution with apache webdav.  It had its own
interoperability problems but I was able to work through them.
