I've been reading the archives with interest and decided to subscribe
to this list. I'm impressed with this WG's honest attempt to discover
the behavior of current implementations and base its Recommendation on
that, as opposed to some WGs that seem to be more interested in design
by committee.

The archives of this list have a lot of information on current state
of the art, but much of it is scattered. Is there a page that
summarizes the implemented features in different UAs somewhere? In
particular (here's the bit relevant to this thread) I'm looking for a
list of methods the different implementations currently support.

Ari.
