I think a long polling option should be implemented as an extension to 
WebDAV sync. The issue with long polling right now is that there is no 
agreed upon standard way of doing that. I'd rather wait for a standards 
based approach to be defined - but WebDAV sync itself should not be blocked 
on that.
