Generally, when there isn't an obvious better place to put them. But it
doesn't look like we're 100% consistent here; for instance, svn_error_t
could be defined in <svn_error.h> and it isn't.

Add entries for the two new functions, explaining that you factored out
logic previously duplicated in authz_parse_section and
authz_get_path_access.

I also found this:

+ if (!path) {
+ /* XXX: Check if the user has 'required_access' _anywhere_ in the
+ * XXX: repository. For now, make this always succeed, until
+ * XXX: we come up with a good way of figuring this out.
+ */

The documentation you wrote for svn_repos_authz_check_access does not
document that path can be NULL. Presumably this relates to some part of
the contract with httpd, so the logic should remain in mod_authz_svn.
