------- Additional Comments From jcollins@asgardsrealm.net  2004-03-23 20:25 -------
Given the original scenario:

  Alias / "/path/to/webapp/directory/for/tomcat"
  Alias /files "/path/to/files"

It seems normal to me that a request such as:

  http://host.com/files/somefile

Should be served from "/path/to/files"

I can understand how this becomes a problem when using AliasMatch, but it is not
a problem when using Alias.  When using Alias the most specific match should be
used regardless of order.  Right now order matters and there's nothing I've seen
(other than the comments in this bug) to indicate that is how it's currently
intended to work.
