My goal is to create a mod_dav_acl that requires acl providers to do  
the real work.  Like a mod_dav_acl_fs to do file based acls so it  
would need a filename, mod_dav_acl_db could do db acls based on uri,  
mod_dav_acl_svn could do uri or svn fs based acls.

I think there is one more patch that is not truly acl related that is  
required for all of this (etags stuff) before the acl patch.

Anybody want to get together to talk about design for mod_dav_acl at
