We use Davenport, for this and other reasons.  Very nice for
workstations (Ximain for example) that don't "really" support CIFS. 
WebDAV is typically faster and more stable than bolted on CIFS support.

Yes, it works.  Although it seems to depend on you version of Windows -
how well it works seems to come and go with every hot fix or service
pack.  But whose surprised by that?
