Hi David

WebDAV is one of those things I've been sort of aware of, but never  
really looked into much.  I've just spent a little while looking into  
it now though and I get the sense from various blogs and forums that  
it can be a pain to implement.  Get it right though and it can work  

Is anyone aware of any libraries that would assist?  (I looked at  
Zend_File_Transfer, but unfortunately the only adapter currently  
available is HTTP.)
