Yeah.  At my last place of employ, it was part of my job to set up a WebDAV
server environment, and write the web-based client.  Linux users could
use cadaver (a clunky, FTP-like DAV command-line DAV client), and
Windows users could use Web folders.  Very nice, I must say.

Although, they didn't get it completely right - for some reason,
certain random Windows installations wouldn't connect to my
Apache/mod_dav server.  I checked thoroughly - I wasn't getting so
much as a single packet.  Screwy.

WebDAV rocks.
