Hmm. I can see where you're coming from, but am worried that some clients
might set a Content-Type even though they don't send content. (e.g. a zero
length body of <x> type)

How about adding this to STATUS, and collecting in there the clients that
have been verified? (e.g. WebFolders, cadaver, Neon clients, etc) Once it
appears that most clients are /not/ sending Content-Type on a MKCOL, then
yes: let's get it integrated.

I've always hated that code :-)
