We haven't implemented all of WebDAV yet, let alone RFC2518bis, and 
don't claim to have a finished or fully-compliant implementation in 
either client or server yet.  We're working on it!  I highly suspect we 
will implement in client and server because we do support anonymous 
access and it's nice for clients to be able to decide to go from that 
to authenticated access.

While I'm on the topic: our WebDAV client library in progress is 
intended to be high-level and more application-oriented than the 
standard libraries that come with Python.  It's open source, naturally, 
and contributions are welcome.
