DeltaV is a complex beast. mod_dav_svn, being a DeltaV server,
generates these weird-looking URLS to represent a whole range of DeltaV

   version resources
   working resources
   working baselines
   version controlled configuration

... and so on. Luckily, DeltaV clients treat all these URLs as opaque
blobs. A client understands that a URL may represent a "versioned
resource", but has no idea how to parse the thing... in fact, according
to the DeltaV spec, it's not even *allowed* to parse the thing. Only
mod_dav_svn is allowed to produce or consume these URLs.

That said, mod_dav_svn exports a nice public function called
dav_svn_split_uri(), declared in include/mod_dav_svn.h. Take a look.
This function asks mod_dav_svn to interpret one of its own URLs, and
explain what it represents. mod_authz_svn makes extensive use of it, so
that it can find out what reprository path a blobby URL *really*

This is exactly what you want. Look at mod_authz_svn's code (pretty
short) as your example.
