I'll assume that you don't need here the content which is included
within mod_dav_acl package at ? Otherwise you are certainly free
to use it anyways you like. Patch contains mostly some "hooks" to
mod_dav, but since i'm not that familiar with apr & apache code, you can
certainly improve things. For dav_acl, caldav and carddav modules (the
latter of which i just recently submitted), only similar kind of things
are needed, so you can change the api freely as long as the
functionality remains. I do have some cycles to update my modules
accordingly. What comes to having included these with httpd, I'm in the
process of asking permission from my company the change the license to
