WebDAV provider tests: how about interacting with a server?

This is pretty cool :-)

I’ve currently got an odd issue with Calc not detecting the content-encoding via the WebDAV layer in bug 95217 - https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95217 - Persian test in a webpage encoded as UTF-8 is corrupting.

Is it worthwhile having an optional component that runs a local webserver that can test out stuff like this?
