Nginx and heavy DAV traffic

I'm planning to use nginx & DAV as a storage backend for 3 webservers
(instead of GFS mounted on all webservers). I'm sure nginx can serve
static files just fine. What worries me is the DAV module.. can it
handle a lot of PUT/DELETE requests? Right now I don't know the rate it
will have to handle... But maybe there some general tips/tweaks for this
setup? Or should i choose some other HTTPd for this task right away?
Btw, CentOS 5.x will be the OS, so i'm open for any Linux tweaks/tips
too. :)
