Oh cool.  Thanks

Forgive me one more question:

The documentation gives examples of webdav permissions such as:
     dav_access user:rw group:rw all:r;

What do these groups actually refer to? Is this a straight mapping to 
unix groups/users?

Ideally my users have login tokens which are their email addresses.  Any 
suggestions on how to set auth access to users and groups of users given 
they don't have local unix accounts?
