Libneon seems to handle the selection of using either Basic or Digest authentication schemes elegantly and moreover, correctly.
Would involved parties object to using parts of libneon for authentication handing in davfs?
I see nothing wrong with this (I already have libneon installed, anyway). Just a thought, though - is libneon's license compatible?
Both licenses are GPL I think - so no conflict there!
I guess it is time to implement with or without neon.
Is there any volunteers to do this?
