There is a lot of similarity, and honestly, the internal complexity of the
HTTP protocol implementation alone much worse than the added complexity of
WebDAV which actually *is* an extension of HTTP. I don't see much benefit in
splitting them now that the code is written.
If there are any volunteers - factoring out the disk caching code and the
authentication code each into a class of their own should help. After that
the rest should be easier as well. Smaller, more specialized data structures
would help too.
