D'you know, I think you're right! The damn mod_authz_svn takes it upon
itself to return HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED in the auth_checker hook, even though
it's thecking authorization, not authentication. I think this is a bug
in mod_authz_svn. It should be returning HTTP_FORBIDDEN (as in the
access_checker hook), and probably shouldn't provide an auth checker at all.
