I guess one could create the following section in httpd.conf
<Location path/to/viewCVS/cgi>
with the same Auth settings as for the SVN Location section.

Or even better, using Location with a regular expression and combining the
auth settings for SVN and ViewCVS in one section (no redundancy).

As anyone ever tried this?
