About that open question i'll received an answer on the httpd list.
Eric Covener answered that it is possible to get that info (there is
some code in mod_info.c which does get that info) but he added:

    It does seem like a risky idea to do it for anything but problem
    determination, though.

So the question remains - why must atuhz_svn needs that info and is it
possible to remove that condition at all and just continue on the stack
to see what it returns?
May be the ones who added that code have some insights about that.

kind regards

Torsten
