Further option to this: we could add additional role-hints (like in  
the dav wagon) so that you can choose which implementation to use in  
case of problems (it'd also need to be added as an extension).

Note that your specific issue can probably be worked around by using a  
dav:// URL instead of http:// on an unmodified 2.1.0.
