Yeah, that behavior makes sense, I guess. "SVNPathAuthz off" disables
mod_dav_svn's ability to perform internal readability checks on any
actions that involve iterating over lots of paths (checkout, log, etc).
  But the initial incoming REPORT request (for checkouts/updates) and
incoming PUT and MERGE requests (for commits) are still directly
intercepted and authorized by mod_authz_svn at the front door.
