I would think that library support would be less of an issue than proxy
I know that subversion has ongoing hassles because they use an "unusual"
HTTP command (PROPFIND)
Every time my company changes ISP I have to log a request to get them to
fix their proxy.
Anyone know what the status is of "DELETE" support in internet proxies?
