mod_dontdothat does not inhibit XML entity expansion

It seems that mod_dontdothat creates an Expat XML parser without
inhibiting XML entity expansion for the internal DTD subset. This
might cause a denial-of-service issue when parsing client-submitted

There are other pieces of code in Subversion which also create Expat
parsers this way, but they are in the client code, so there is less

May I file an issue for this?
