r1.32 of mod_actions in the httpd-2.0 CVS module is a 2.1.x revision
number.  It adds a "virtual" option to the Action directive, "which allows
the use of handlers for virtual locations" (according to the commit log),
which I think does match up with what you're asking for here.  But then
why this patch instead of backporting r1.32 to the 2.0.x branch?  Is there
a revision number for similar behavior in apache 1.3?  Oh, I see... that
would be r1.33 of mod_actions in the apache-1.3 CVS module.  That does
indeed match up with your patch.

So why is this same general behavior unconditional in httpd 1.3 but
non-existant in 2.0 and requires a "virtual" flag on 2.1?  Andre?
Thoughts?  The "virtual" thing was your doing...
