I have noticed that there are many failures in t/modules/access.t 
because of "AllowOverride Limit" being ignored. In this case, many 
requests that should have been denied have been allowed. Should we 
keep "AllowOverride Limit" as alias for "AllowOverride AuthConfig"? Of 
course the deprecation warning should be kept.

Apart from that, I am fine with the removelimit sandbox. Attached is a 
patch to make the test framework work.
