Any idea why it was removed?

The issue title should say it all, but here it goes:

Zope used to send a "MS-Author-Via: DAV" header, which in old versions
of Microsoft Office would cause Word to be fired and try to lock the
file and then open it, which if the user was an anonymous user would
prevent the file download.

Recently (Jan 2005 and May 2007) Microsoft fixed this issue by
updating the "WebFolders" implementation. Also recent versions of
Microsoft Office don't have this issue either.

The patch adds back the "MS-Author-Via: DAV" header for compatibility
with old versions of WebFolders, but with a toggle on zope.conf,
default to off.

It also adds a "Public: ..." header, for compatibility with *new*
versions of WebFolders, which now require it, with another separate
toggle in zope.conf, also default to off.
