Hi Eric.

Where exactly do you get stuck?

Generally, I see two "problems":
a) Documentation should be improved, to better educate users what they're doing
there. I could write patches for this. 
b) I don't understand why e.g.
<DirectoryMatch ^/some/path/a/>  #note the trailing slash
Order Allow,Deny
Allow From All
Options +indexes
</DirectoryMatch>

let's me access via the URL:
http://somehost.org/a/
but NOT
http://somehost.org/a

http://somehost.org/a/foo => works, as expected
http://somehost.org/aFOO => doesn't work, as expected



Regarding the rebasing:
(a) applies to 2.4, too (I was working on that's documentation)
(b) I'll set up some 2.4 installation to check whether that happens there, too
