Nope (though, I assume the books will get it eventually). The Subversion
1.3 release notes <http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.3_releasenotes.html>
just indicate how to turn it on.

Describing the contents of the SVN-ACTION Apache environment variable
would certainly be useful, especially given that it's grown to include
quite a bit more content than it did in the initial 1.3 release.

Alternate, we might want to split the details into other Apache environment
variables (in the "SVN-" scope).
