well, almost. XML-PPC (which blogapi uses) happens entirely via POST, 
and nothing special as far as PHP configuration. webdav, on the other 
hand, defines some extensions to standard HTTP, thus you need the 
"allow_webdav_methods" which only showed up in 4.3.2. for more info see:


That said, webdav would be a cool extension - bulk image/file uploads, 
iCal publishing, etc etc  would all be possible over webdav.
