I don't care much either way about this feature, but if you do add it,
please do it in a way that does not need the ugly "AuthzSVNRelativePath
On". I see no technical reason why the code could not automatically
detect whether AuthzSVNAccessFile is an absolute or a relative path.
(e.g., absolute paths start with "/" or something OS-dependent; relative
paths start with "./" or "../" or something OS-dependent; or just access
the files in a way that uses the OS to do the right thing, via the moral
equivalent of "cd somedir ; open file".)
