They do it through the Explorer and Network Places.

If you add a network place that is a webdav server, you can point
explorer at it, and click open.

Down in the guts, it is just like a network redirect.

If you are using the TeamStream WebDav client, they will map a Windows
Drive letter for you.  They also do some caching to make things more

If the TeamStream client is pointed at Xythos WFS, you can right click
on a file in the Explorer and see a 'Versioning' tab.  From that menu
you could turn versioning on for a file, view old versions, or perform
check-in and check-out.
