Well, no, I don't think it's generic enough to call that.  zope.app.http 
is almost a webdav implementation, except I'm not sure it implements 
enough to actually work with most webdav clients.

I've pondered this split before, but AFAICT it would only increase the 
number of dependencies, so I've been waiting for the graph to shrink 
before talking about it.
