So a DAV-compliant resource can't be, say, a CGI script? Even in
'advanced DAV'?

If I have http://a/b/c/ and I want to add a CGI such that
 http://a/b/c/d is indirectly http://a/b/c/d.cgi, where
'd.cgi' computes a query, you might have http://a/b/c/d?e .
Now, is http://a/b/c/d.cgi a 'member' of http://a/b/c/ ?
