Patch to switch to PyWebDAV3 0.9.10

The upstream for pywebdav is gone:
- http://www.webdav.de/
- https://code.google.com/archive/p/pywebdav/

However, the code was picked up by Andrew Leech for the aioeasywebdav project, and ported to Python 3 while keeping 2.7 compatibility. It is now developed and released here:
- https://github.com/andrewleech/PyWebDAV3
- https://pypi.python.org/pypi/PyWebDAV3

I've checked the porting changes made, and aside from a few stylistic issues and a setup.py encoding bug (for which i filed pull requests), they look fine.

Here is a specfile patch to switch Fedora's pywebdav package to PyWebDAV3. I've also included a few modernizations, and put the README in the %doc.

If this is unacceptable I can package this separately as python3-pywebdav, but I believe PyWebDAV3 is as legitimate an heir to the pywebdav name as we can get.
