Wow this helps a lot, thanks !!! Actually I made a small java
application in order to trace HTTP transactions but this is interesting
to have information from "inside". Know I'll try to sort out my problems
By the way, is there any reason for doing a PROFIND/Depth:1 on every
single collection found on a folder ? I mean, y have about 400 files in
this folder, so the engine is making 400 queries just to "know" that
there is a file inside. And if go down to the folder, and up again, the
engine is redoing it (no cache ?).
In the same idea, any hope to see GZIP encoded activated ? I made some test
between my server and DAVExplorer which supports that, and this make a huge
difference as the payload is very well compressed. For my 400 files folder,
normal payload is 250kb, and 17 with compression. I think this and the cache
stuff would make gfvsd-dav very snappy.

Ok, so I'm not crazy and this will happen at one point. BTW is there any tuto
somewhere in order to build my own version of gvfsd-dav ? is it "easy" ? Perhaps
an url to check out ?

To be honest with you, I've been waiting this since KDE4 is out and that
I decided to switch "definitely" to Gnome. KIO was a huge productivity help
and I was sad not to find the same framework. So yes, I really appreciate your
work, and if I can give a hand, I will.
