That path would be a top-level project at the ASF, so we probably
couldn't do that. If anything, we could move contrib/ to
^/subversion/contrib, but that seems like just a hack.
Even though there already exists stuff in contrib/, my main point with
regards to this particular module is that we shouldn't be adding more
to contrib/. Your suggestion to use apache-extras.org is a great one,
and I'd invite interested parties to pursue development there.

Exactly. I don't object to the module, per se (indeed, I don't
endorse it, either), but the Subversion tree in the ASF repo is not a
generic apache module hosting service. :)
