There is now experimental support for temporary redirects in the CVS sources, branch rel-1-4-6.

It would be important to test it with real world servers (I have no access to a real world server that uses redirects). If you are willing to test this feature I will gladely send you a prerelease source package.

If you want to build from the CVS sources, please be sure to select branch rel-1-4-6. You will also need additional build tools (please see file INSTALL) in this case.

maybe it's a starting point to look at
libzapojit the library GnomeDocuments uses for skyrive access?

Wed 01 Feb 2012 03:10:43 PM UTC, original submission:

Some servers that serve huge amounts of data distribute them an many hosts. GET requests will be redirected to an appropriate host.

davfs2 should handle these redirects (302 and 307) for GET and HEAD.
Redirecting anything else than GET and HEAD would be problematic because the specs require user interaction for this and because it is not clear whether any server could handle this.
