Ok, sorry, I missed the WebDAV thingy. You are right. BUT WebDAV is very
limited; see transactions and a standard query API. However, this is
another discussion.

This is exactly the reason why I won't use Slide for Lenya; I can not
use WebDAV because of its limitations and I do not want to rely on the
_propriatry_ Slide API.

And I can not believe that WebDAV is the right API to let a CMS app base
upon (because of the limitations). The way to go IMHO is:

Use JCR API for heavy weight requirements (tx, query) and provide also a
WebDAV API for low level clients to access the same repo.

To be honest again, my personal wish is that Slide and Rabbit folks
would work more closely together. I feel the potential of
cross-pollination is great.
