Ah, good!  Something not about options (:-).

   From: Greg Stein <gstein@lyra.org>

   Consider that I have a collection under baseline control. I want to check
   out a specific version resource (to get a working resource) from a specific
   baseline of that collection.

Or in other words, you want to checkout a particular baseline to get
a "working baseline"?

   I believe the order of operations would be:

   PROPFIND /my/coll
     <DAV:baseline-selector>

   CHECKOUT /the/baseline/selector
   Label: which-baseline
     <DAV:apply-to-version>

   I'm presuming that the latter will create the working resource for me.

The "Label" header makes the CHECKOUT method apply to the specified
baseline (rather than to the baseline selector), so the DAV:apply-to-version
argument is redundant.

Cheers,
Geoff
