I'm currently working with some content editors that would like to keep their current WYSIWYG tools and use them in combination with Zope/Plone, and using the DAV interface seemed like the best approach, and it does indeed mostly work. One of the larger problems we face using this approach is that quite a few products expose objects via DAV that are not roundtrip-safe; getting-then-putting will result in unwanted behaviour in some cases, and for other objects I don't see much value in allowing them to be accessed over DAV (like the contents of acl_users).
I wrote the attached monkey patch to address this (be kind, I'm pretty new to Python), and Sidnei da Silva (author of DavPack) suggested I post the patch on these lists to see if there was an interest into this approach.
What it does is disable DAV access for non-collection resources in general and then selectively turns it on for some (non-exhaustive) list. Folderish objects are enabled by default but can be turned off. Objects/classes can also disable or enable themselves by explicitly setting __dav_resource__ to 0 or 1. I'm not suggesting this particular list is the correct one.
With kind regard, Emiliano Heyns
