Are you saying that in future you won't need to have both mod_dav and
mod_dav_fs?  I just think that we should make it easy to enable as we're
going to have it disabled by default.

Simply passing in --enable-dav should get the server up and running with DAV
support I think.

If there's a time when mod_dav_fs isn't required then we can change it then
can't we?
