  I'd love to see this sort of thing added to the standard library,
esp. once packages are used there.  Especially if the implementation
is pure Python (which I think your WebDAV stuff is, right?)

  This I don't know.

  Mixed, I think.  There is definately a C component.  I'd rather it
be pure Python, but I think it's a SWIGged wrapper around a C client
  Is anyone talking to the developer about this yet?
