I recently discovered an interesting quirk relating to mod_authz_svn
configuration in Apache httpd 2.0 and 2.2.

Below is my _working_ local Subversion configuration. Spot the rather
unusual configuration directive :-)

<Location /repos>
DAV svn
SVNParentPath /svn
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Max's Local Repositories"
Require supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Satisfy Any
AuthUserFile /svn/htpasswd
AuthzSVNAccessFile /svn/authz
</Location>

Note that removing the unusual line does affect the configuration - it
isn't being ignored completely.

Having studied the code, I do understand how this state of affairs
actually works - I'm not seeking an explanation, I'm just posting this
because it's too bizarre not to share :-)

Max.
