Talks very briefly about webdav, but doesn't mention anything about
turning it on. I guess it's off to Apache (2) doco...

If someone feels motivated and knows this, a set of bullets might be
good for future newbies:
 - how to turn on webdav for apache 1.x
 - how to turn on webdav for apache 2.x

I'm also suspicious about the .listing files, but from what
everyone is saying here, tla will just "know" that it's http
via webdav, and will automatically "get" directory listings
as needed.

If that's all the case, then that sounds pretty straightforward
in fact...
