davlib.py is pure Python, building upon my upgraded httplib.py and
xml.utils.qp_xml (and pyexpat)

[ and recall my email last week that I've updated httplib.py and posted it
  to my web pages; it is awaiting review for integration into the Python
  core; it still needs docs and more testing scenarios, tho


davlib will probably be a 1.7 item. It still needs some heavy work to
easily deal with authentication (which is usually going to be required for
DAV operations).
