I have taken a look at the dav test and it really isn't hard to convert it
to HTTP::Webdav (Especialy because I have fixed a bug in the HTTP::Webdav
locking code, so locking now really works), but while thinking about it, I
had remembered one person who told me that he is implementing something like
a DAV test suite with HTTP::Webdav. Since the DAV tests currently are only
basic, I thought it would maybe a good idea to take a look at his code and
see if this would be useable for more advanced testing. So I mailed him, but
didn't got any feedback so far. At the moment I don't even know if this code
will be OpenSource, so we could use it.

I keep you informed if anything new arises
