I completely agree.
At this point, we would need a WebDAV HTTP server in Squeak in order
to make Lively run from a one-click Squeak image. If you know such a
server, please let us know.

Technically, WebDAV is only a design decision. We might want to
decouple our tools from DAV and think of a simpler protocol for Lively
installations that do not need DAV SVN versioning.

WebDAV is pretty awesome the moment it works, but getting there can be painful.
