My only confusion is what your patch for AllowOverrideOptions does, that
AllowOverride doesn't accomplish.  I've too few cycles to dig deeply, but
could you provide a trivial example?

Just as a footnote, even if this were integrated into 2.1 today, it wouldn't
be backported as a new feature this close to release, and may not be
backported at all, as the developers are trying to simply get 2.0 stable
and focus energy with new features into 2.1-dev, that version will ultimately
become an httpd-2.2.0 release once the development tree is stable.
(Then, as we release 2.2 versions, we will be dropping new-feature energy
at a 2.3-dev tree, much like Linux and Perl projects do.)
