I don't think so. It would certainly improve the linkage issue :-)

Like I said, it would ship separately as part of Subversion (SVN). You'd
have your mod_dav(_fs) DLL, and another mod_dav_svn DLL for the SVN stuff.

True, but you required a linkage spec in ALL of the declarations. That was a
bit silly :-) ... IMO, have a new extended macro which allows the linkage to
be specified; the current macro would continue to use the default/standard

We could also compile DAV directly into the core (and I'd be happy with
that) but I'd doubt that is a concensual point of view :-)
