No ?, then how does Apache know where the scripts to be printed are ?

The Alias maps the URL to a file, so if <Location > prevents or can
be made to prevent the mapping, then a ///foo request won't match
anything in the conf file. Only if <Location> is acted upon will
(in my theory/proposal) the Alias be expanded.

See what I mean ?

That way the CGI triggering <Location > would  use Alias to find the
directory of the URL, at which point <Location > has forced the
contents to be treated as CGI.

Basically, this 404 rejects URLs with //s in them unless they match the
<Location > argument.
