That is correct. But they do have a WebDAV extension to HttpClient.
Besides, Slide was also mostly focused on the server side :-)

If all you use is the client, there is no immediate hurry. However,
the Slide WebDAV client is based on an unsupported backlevel version
of HttpClient, besides being unsupported itself. As long as it works,
you're fine. As soon as a problem occurs, you're on your own.
The Jackrabbit WebDAV client is your best option at Apache.
I don't know about any non-Apache WebDAV clients.
