When it has the capability of exposing source that would not otherwise
be served, absolutely.

The fundamental flaw with this patch is that dav_fixups runs after
core_override_type - so the "none" handler simply won't get reassigned
by the rest of the applicable configs - ie set to CGI or PHP or
whatnot.  So, it would simply fall through and go to the default
handler.  Ouch.  -- justin
