mod_dontdothat is not a core module. It's effectively a debugging tool.
Whereas mod_dav_svn and mod_authz_svn are part of the core Subversion
functionality. The different locations aren't accidental.

The main problem with moving mod_dontdothat was that the way it was done
broke Unix builds without Apache HTTPd. That's fixed on trunk now, and
could probably be backported to 1.7.x.
