May be miss something, but I don't understand why subversion
(mod_svn_authz) replies http error 401 (authorization failed) on
access denied, instead of 403 (forbidden)? My opinion that 401 means
that user provided invalid login/password pair, while 403 that user
provided valid login/password but have no access to this area. Correct
my if I wrong.
