> I think we should base a PUT task on WebDAV rather than HTTP PUT alone.

I am still not 100% clear what the diffs between HTTP/1.1  PUT and webdav
PUT are. I think they are:-

-webDav clients should lock the resource first, unlock it afterwards and
include the lock key in the PUT request

-webdav clients and servers should support more secure alternatives to
basic-auth, such as message digest authentication

The question is, how much of that is needed right now -specifcally, what do
the servers (especially apache with mod_dav1.0) expect?
