I know I'm being offtopic here, but CGI script cannot provide
DAV service currently because mod_cgi.c does not let script handle
OPTIONS request. So even if CGI script knew how to handle it, it's
impossible to notify client about that capability.

I've looked though past discussion, and it seems there was no
negative response on making this behavior configurable. There
even was a patch (not the one I posted sometime ago - it existed
for several years), but for some reason, it never got incorporated.
