When I crawled out of bed today it ocurred to me that there is
a very reasonable sollution already.

We've had a "FTP access" permission for ages. So, either:

- make WebDAV, XMLRPC etc protected by "View Management Screens"

- make WebDAV, XMLRPC etc protected by "FTP access"

- make WebDAV, XMLRPC etc protected by "DAV/RPC access"
  (a new permission)

                  Bring back the perfect day
