Not sure what you mean by "access control challange". It allows you to 
determine whether authentication is required or valid prior pushing the 
content. Access control must be determined with WebDAV ACL or something 

It goes like this:
1) client sends HTTP request header with expect: 100-continue
2) server checks the 'authorization' header
3) if authorization fails for the given method+header, the server sends
    a 401 with www-authenticate
4) if auth is OK, it sends a 100 Continue

Pretty much what you were asking for initially?
