I wonder how many of these round trips are to work around bad servers.
For example, Apache still does not understand If-None-Match *
correctly!  (One of my team members, Paritosh Shah, has submitted a
patch to the Apache mailing list.  Hopefully it will be accepted)

WebDAV awareness seems to be increasing - hence, this blog posting.
This should put pressure on client and server developers to fix their
implementations.  In some way, bad news is better than no news.
