Hi.

A relatively frequent use case for servers that both support versioning and
DASL seems to have searches that include all versions of the resources in
scope. In general, the version URIs may not be in the scope of the query.
Therefore, I'd like to extend the DAV:scope to specify inclusion of
versions. This would be an optional extension -- however, a server that does
not support his feature should reject the request (so that the client would
know that the request could not be satisfied).

Example:

    <d:from xmlns:d="DAV:">
      <d:scope>
        <d:href>/container1/</d:href>
        <d:depth>infinity</d:depth>
        <d:include-versions />
      </d:scope>
    </d:from>

Feedback appreciated,

Julian
