I did not want to program to the propriatry Slide API either ;) 

Anyway, Slide supports both a standard query API as well as
transactions. Seach is standard WebDAV and for transactions, events /
notifcation we use the extensions MS proposed...

Daniel, the inventor of Projector - which is part of Slide - did
exactly that: implement some sort of CMS frontend (i.e. workflow,
processing, etc.) against WebDAV. I have recently heard rumors he now
adapts it to work with SVN which speaks a WebDAV dialect as well. So,
this is well possible and seems to work fine...

By the way, I was not able to follow the progress of  the Rabbit
thing, is there already any sort of useable backend? Does it provide
transactions now?

Would be interesting to know...

Is there any special mailing list I could subscribe to?
