mod_dav_svn api

From: Marcus Rueckert <darix_at_web.de>

i just started mod_authn_svn as a C learning project.
reading through the svn and apache api atm.

atm mod_dav_svn.h only exports dav_uri_split()

if i understand the
correctlly then apache already knows the current url points
to a svn location. now i thought it would be smart to just ask
apache about the path real path of the current repositories.
using with path apply the same logic as svnserve:

1. read svnserve.conf
2. get the path of the passwd file. [1]
3. try to read it and authenticate with it.

this way i could share the password file nicely.

but how can i cleanly access the config options from other modules?
would it be usefull to republish some of the external mod_dav_svn api?


[1] ideal would be to set the realm to the same value as svnserve would
do. but i was told this would require a mod_auth_svn too. this would
mean i would need some wraper on top of mod_auth_basic and
mod_auth_digest. maybe later.
