   RST a while ago mentioned that if a <Directory> directive for a particular
   directory was found in the global config files the .htaccess file in that
   directory would not be parsed.  Does NCSA do this?

   As it stands any other directives in the .htaccess file (such as
   AddDescription) will be ignored if there is a matching <Directory> entry! 

Hmmm... as it happens, the old NCSA code does read both <Directory>
and .htaccess info if both are present...  if people are actually
relying on this, it's probably worth changing to be compatible.
