Uuh. First I wouldn't call it regex. The stuff is called wildcards :)
Second, I wouldn't name the directives that long (Further I'd compress them
into one directive AuthzSVNOptions or so). And last but not least, apache
itself provides full featured regexps (PCRE) and fnmatch functions, which
should be used. I could help to rework the patch accordingly, if you like.
