I tend to think the user db functionality should stay as modular as
possible; this is one of the great wins of Apache, in that we can leave
all the per-user details (authentication and authorization) up to the
Apache process and not have to worry about it ourselves. E.g., use
<Directory> or <Location> or even <Files> (and the corresponding
*Match) to determine where people have commit privs and the like. Then
people could use something like Comanche to configure perms graphically if
they need to.

But I may be seeing the world through tigris-tinted glasses....
