Thanks. This has been an angels-on-the-head-pin-debate. What matters to me
is what does the software do on the user's desktop. When you guys come up
with some compelling software that we have to use HTTP or WebDAV to talk to,
you bet we'll support it. Get busy spec'ing and coding. Mark has been
hurling fud all over the place, been there done that, sick of it. Dave
