AuthzSVNAccessFile groups

I may just be the victim of minimal AuthzSVNAccessFile documentation,
but I am currently pained by the disconnect between AuthzSVNAccessFile,
and AuthGroupFile (and its Digest and DBM variants).

AuthzSVNAccessFile uses usernames that are defined in AuthFile or
AuthDigestFile, however it forces groups that may already be defined in
AuthGroupFile, AuthDigestGroupFile, or AuthDBMGroupFile to be redefined.
This opens the door for group membership inconsistencies when the same
groups need to be used in both places.

It would be most helpful if AuthzSVNAccessFile could import
AuthGroupFile and AuthDBMGroupFile format groups files.
