Having the hands in both owncloud and php-sabre-dav, it will be easier for
me to patch one to use the other patched one out of the usual path, so I
intend to go and introduce php-sabre-dav-2.1.

Since you stated not “hav[ing] much time in the upcoming month (and maybe
more)”, I guess that should do the trick in the mean time, but please,
keep us posted if you have anything that could even partially answer the
initial question (at least for the upstream part, I have no clear view
about where to dig for information about Horde upstream, and would be
happy to at least try and figure that by myself by looking at their Horde
*Dav VCS):

Hopefully, we’ll figure something less hackish before Stretch gets released
