I wonder (but have not tested) if it would be possible to exclude some
HTTP
commands from authentication. Things such as OPTIONS and PROPFIND.

This is easy enough to do with LimitExcept rules, but will things break?
Would
file content or information "leak" that shouldn't?

Anyone have some thoughts?
