If I recall correctly, Ben added this so that you could use <Location>
to mess with name-translation stuff.  The second location_walk was
retained because we wanted <Location> to continue to override <File>
and <Directory>. The per-dir config stuff is reset in directory_walk
anyway, so calling location_walk here is incapable of hurting anything
except by intent.

Or something like that.
