CEE (tigris.org) doesn't use mod_authz_svn, but a proprietary module
called mod_auth_svn. The name is deliberately ambiguous, because it
registers itself as both an authn and authz hook with apache. It
performs authn by checking the basic-auth-creds against a central CEE
database, and performs authz by checking paths against another
central CEE database.
