Sounds reasonable to me.  OTOH, I haven't a clue as to how <Directory>,
<Location>, and <File> interact in practice -- it was hard enough just
trying to figure out how directory_walk alone worked, and I've long
since forgotten that.  We have no documentation on it (not even Ben's book
covers the subject).
