  +    * Revert to a 1.3 behavior and allow a non-file request to travel
  +      through the request cycle.  If any request gets to the core handler,
  +      without a flag that this r->filename was tested by dir/file_walk,
  +      then we 500 at the very end of the request cycle.  This provides
  +      authors of older modules better compatibility, while still improving
  +      the security and robustness of 2.0.  This does not remove the new
  +      map_to_storage hook itself, but makes it optional for some cases.
  +
  +    * There is an observation that svn + ssl has a significant interaction
  +      in dir_merge sections with the new location_walk optimization.  This
  +      could reflect a bug in retrieving the cached location_walk, or some
  +      other nasty mis-config.  Core dump post to httpd-dev;

  +    * There is an interesting problem with directory_walk, now that it is
  +      optional (may be overridden by a map_to_storage hook.)  The change
  +      of per_dir_default for a vhost switch doesn't happen until dir_walk.
  +      This switch needs to be pushed out of directory_walk, perhaps the
  +      burden is put on the 'switcher' of the ->server entry, such as 
  +      mod_vhost_alias itself.

       * There is a bug in how we sort some hooks, at least the pre-config
         hook.  The first time we call the hooks, they are in the correct 
         order, but the second time, we don't sort them correctly.  Currently,
