-- Ok, here's what I don't understand... in the mod_perl approach, wouldn't
the mod query the database only once - during startup, and load all the
configuration into memory -- and as Ionel (and I) have said in the past,
wouldn't this amount of configuration be slow and take up a tremendous
amount of ram?

Or does the mod_perl approach do the opposite: querying the database on each
request, thus reducing the number of configurations needing to be processed
per request?

-- Secondly, how does mod_rewrite or mod_alias help? The URL's don't need to
change - it's the path to the repositories and arguments to mod_authz_svn
that need to be dynamic...
