Yes. If the authz file changes on disk this will not be reflected in
(because it is cached on the Apache connection) anyway.

If the USER changes between different request on the same connection
the cache will be purged. But that shouldn't happen anyway (except
for malicious requests using modified Subversion libraries).
There may also be other users of svn_repos_authz_check_access() besides
mod_authz_svn, but the only example in our tree is in the test suite and
that isn't affected.
