Jari is the original author of mod_dav_acl, which requires patches to  
httpd to work.  I need the same functionality added to httpd to get a  
mod_dav_acl type module working, so I have split up his patch into  
smaller pieces.  Can a patch be under a different license than the  
original code?

My plan is to create a mod_dav_acl module that would require providers  
to plugin (mod_dav_acl_fs, mod_dav_acl_dbd, etc).
