OK, got it.  Thanks for the clear explanation.

This could possibly be handled by checking for overlaps between <Location > and 
<Directory > at config time, especially if they are sorted in least-to-most 
specific order as wrowe suggests.

But my current favorite idea is Joshua's suggestion for the module to declare 
that the content is virtual, pure and simple.  In that case, any such overlaps 
are an admin screwup IMO.  GET /server-status/index.html doesn't make any sense 
to me even if such a directory exists.
