According to my reading of the code, no it isn't possible.  However, I
have just commmitted a fix for this.  I am hoping that one of the DAV
experts will review my fix for correctness, but it is what we did until a
few weeks ago.

However, from my reading of the dav_module, I have a major concern.  The
module is currently trying to handle every type of request.  But, that is
wrong, it isn't how modules are supposed to behave.  Mod_dav should only
be setting the handler field for requests that it knows it can serve

Because 2.0.42 always displays script source for CGI scripts that use
POST, I believe that we should put that notice on our main site, and stop
suggesting 2.0.42 for production use.

Mod_dav developers, please check my commit.
