What do you mean "nope". Stop trying to be so Right. There is a bug in the
default_handler. I just committed a fix.

And I *already* said there is a separate issue/bug. You don't have to keep
beating the damned horse and continue to disagree to try and show that
you're the guy with all the answers. It's really annoying. You could just
say, "yah. default_handler does have a bug, but both need to be fixed [but I
already fixed the mod_dav one]".

AP_DECLARE_HOOK(int,fixups,(request_rec *r))

As I said: this hook isn't quite "right", but it will serve our needs.

I'll tweak mod_dav to fix the POST checking.
