Indeed, but probably it would be better to implement a 
webdav(ish) hook, webdav is a kind of file/version control oriented RPC.
Drupal does have the nessesary igradients to be able to implement it - 
XML parser, php knows about post, put, whatever http requests,
we have the example of the BlogApi, Webdav is not too different.

A native understanging of DAV will allow updating any content by
submitting a file via webDAV.

The only missing ingredient is http authentication against drupal, that
is Drupal knowing and speaking the www-authenticate and authorization
http headers.
