OK, thanks for the clarification.

As far as I can tell this means that neither "jcr-server" (the thingy in 
the "server" subdirectory) nor "simple-server" (the one on the "webapp" 
subdirectory) will act as generic WebDAV servers: one exposes too much, 
the other one too little of the capabilities of JCR.

So is a generic WebDAV server setup that could act as a drop-in 
replacement for things such as Apache/mod_dav, IIS or Slide in scope of 
this Apache activity, or would I need to start my own project for that? 
(Understanding that Cosmo may be part of the answer :-)

Best regards, Julian
