My apologies for being out of the loop. I was on leave for a week or
so (Zope/Plone day slotted in the middle) with no real head space for

probably revisit the four January tickets after (a) a server upgrade,
3.0.4 to 3.1 and (b) a laptop Mac OS X upgrade, 10.4.11 to 10.5.2.

With respect: concerning WebDAV, I _do_ think that Plone's promise is
not matched by its current delivery.
Ending on positive notes:
1) It's very useful to learn (in this list) what other people expect
2) At <http://www.bud.ca/blog/plone-wishes> Kevin Teague's
'#16: IMPROVE DESKTOP INTEGRATION' was pleasantly thought provoking.
I'll post my thoughts to plone-users via <http://www.nabble.com/
Thanks to Sidnei, raphael, tomster, witsch and others involved in
this PLIP :)
