:-( I was but for some reason mixed up and thought it supported xpath
and sql search...but this is the JCR Webdav Server only.

Yes, I knew only XPATH/SQL query. Would it be hard to add XPATH/SQL
support for the simple (standard) webdav server as well? It seems to me
that it would be similar to the one for the jcr-server (dav remoting),
though I must admit I am not in a position to judge, because simply do
not know enough about it yet.
