As I suspected. If I get a chance I'll try to do this and submit a patch.

That's one approach but it would mean parallel development on my part matching
the changes in mod_authz_svn by changes in my own code. If I use the APIs I
also don't need to care at all about whether I am dealing with a ConfigParser
like file format or another format. But I appreciate you were just trying to
give me a way around the problem - in fact I already have code that does just
what you are suggesting that I am trying to get away from ;-)

Thanks for your input, hopefully next time I post on this issue it will be
with a contribution.
