Such obvious feature missing. +1

Thanks for the hint. This is another good reason for implementing ranged requests.
Some graphical file managers show similar behaviour.

So the only thing missing is some additional free time.

Another consideration for implementing ranged GET requests:

When using fusecompress over davfs-mounted WebDAV storage, a simple "ls -l" on a compressed directory will effectively download every file in it.

(Supposed) Reason: fusecompress reads a few bytes of each (backing) file to check for its header signature and report the real (uncompressed) size information (in the lstat call of ls, readattr in fusecompress). Unfortunately, davfs reads the whole file into its cache directory (which is invariably to small to hold everything that is needed).

davfs2 should implement ranged requests, at least for GET.
