Well, if it opened the props database once per connection, say, I just think
it would be more difficult to conceptually bind a value squirreled away in
that structure to a particular PROPPATCH invocation.  If we can say that the
lifetime of the props DB matches the lifetime of the request that modifies
it, there's a cleaner argument for treating it as a request-specific context

Hrm, come to think of it, this might be something that isn't easy to do by
merely extending the PROPPATCH request.  mod_dav may simply not give us
enough information.  Is this something we need to employ HTTPv2 for?  (I
truly don't know at this point.)
