I think this should work properly: when using WebDAV to access the 
objects they *should* return the raw XML rather than processing it 
first. To be honest I'm not 100% sure if I finished implementing this on 
the SilvaFlexibleXML product, it's been a while since I last worked on 
that, but afaik it should, so my question is: are you accessing Zope 
using the WebDAV port?

You can set up a special WebDAV port in etc/zope.conf, if you access 
Zope through that instead of through the normal HTTP port, a different 
method is called to get the contents of an object (called 
'manage_FTPGet' or something). Did you do that already? If not, could 
you give that a try?
