Apache 1.3 gives precedent to directories over locations.  I'm not clear how 
you reached that conclusion, but I just tested it on 1.3 (and 2.0), and in the 
presence of a collision, the directory is returned not the location.

What you might be suspicious of is that 2.0 may invoke the handler associated 
with the location and not the default handler.  In 1.3, mod_mime would not run 
the SetHandler line if it was a directory - see mod_mime.c:626.  However, in 
2.0, the SetHandler enforcement was taken out of mod_mime and placed in 
core_override_type in core.c:3222 which *does* act upon a directory. 
Therefore, under 2.0, the SetHandler line is enacted, where in 1.3, it was not.

I think the proper thing may be to have core_override_type follow the 1.3 
semantics and punt on a directory.  But, I'm not sure.  Thoughts?  -- justin
