heh heh. :-)

No, mod_authz_svn is not included in the default build for now. One
problem is a missing library dependency on mod_dav_svn -- which I'll fix
with a custom hack in the generator, yuck -- and the other problem is
that mod_dav_svn doesn't export its public symbols correctly (using
AP_MODULE_DECLARE). Sander and I sort of have an understanding that
he'll take care of that bit.

AFAIK it doesn't work with VC6 yet, either.

Small chance of that. I think it's more likely we could push the
generator itself into APR. Nobody likes maintaining .dsp files, and
maintainig two sets is a nightmare.

Yes. There's no workaround that I know of; VS.Net's .dsp converter
simply doesn't handle those quotes correctly. I believe it makes sense
to take the trouble to maintain the .vcproj generator.
