I find the mod_dav code a little scary, but on the other hand I have  
ETags working properly with PUT in mod_atom, and there are a couple  
of little gotchas that can getcha.  So if someone is looking at this,  
maybe I can help.   If nobody's looking at it, I suppose I could hold  
my breath and wade into the mod_dav swamp, but I'd really rather not,  
I'd be really worried about breaking something; do we have people  
here who grok mod_dav & could answer questions?
