At this exactly moment, it seems to me that there isn't a support for 
WebDAV in Libwww CVS code base. But, if you like, I built a WebDAV 
module for Libwww. It implements all new methods proposed in RFC 2518 
(lock, unlock, proppatch, propfind, etc). If you wants to try it, it's 
available at http://gnome.inrialpes.fr:1959/src/libwwwDAV.tar.gz.

About your other question :

>Best regards,
When I introduced the WebDAV module in Libwww, I've also introduce some 
"extension methods". This methods are "undefined" methods, that the 
applications may set. So, if your application needs some method that the 
Libwww doesn't known, you may "register" the new methods using this new 
feature. I think that feature may help you...

If you decided to try it, please, repport me any bug that you found...  :-)

Best regards,
