Yes... a very cool project.
However, I wish it had been built like the uservfs (http://uservfs.sf.net/)
project. That is a userland file system which uses Linux's CODA filesystem
to communicate between the kernel and userspace. Since the CODA driver is
already part of the kernel, and is already be included in many distros, that
means the DAVfs would not be required to have a kernel module installed. You
would still need root to mount the filesystem using the coda stuff, but
there wouldn't be any problems with a broken module oops'ing the kernel.
It would also free the DAVfs to work with more than just the 2.4 kernel. In
fact... since a CODA fs is available on Solaris, the system could be used
