Edgar you rock!  I downloaded this and now Oberon
no longer hangs when I issue WebDAV commands!  I 
think I know what the problem was (maybe?).  
Version 1.0 didn't have support for authorization 
(at least there's no reference to it in 
es.WebDAV.Tool in that version.)  So I guess 
the client didn't know how to respond to
that?  Anyway how do I apply for a password?

Thanks.  So perhaps the latest WinAos and the latest
BlueBottle are slightly out of synch on this?

Well, like I said, it's no longer hanging me.  But
I'd need a password to test further.  Maybe the
I was having before (being able to do everything 
except download) if fixed too?

Great news!  Would they be the first test of WebDAV
against a non BlueBottle server?  I have a Zope
server running and I've heard Zope supports WebDAV
though I've never tried it.
