Read-only in the browser, unless you roll your own PHP uploader or

Read-write by mounting the WebDAV folder as a network share in desktop OS.
This works natively in OS X and Windows 7. It sort of works in Windows XP
(they are called Web Folders). And in BSD or Linux you'd use FUSE or a
WebDAV client.

Works great for simple sharing. Plays especially nice with bits of OS X that
like to share things via WebDAV, like iCal and iWork.

It's not a "management system", so if you need features you probably want to
look elsewhere. But a literal read of your requirements suggested that it
would be a simple solution.
