[Thomas pleas for using WEBDAV in CPyAN.]

This is really a discussion for the CPyAN SIG, not for the meta-sig!

Regardless of the merits of CPyAN, I'm wary of using WEBDAV here -- if
the goal is to improve the Python experience for downloading 3rd party
modules, we should be using lowest-common-denominator tools.  That
means we can require nothing more than a web browser and an ftp
