BTW, it would be trivial to create a <Method > container that 
internally just creates an appropriate struct to place into 
core_dir_config->condition, just like <If> does. The problem is that 
this (and <If >) does not work in Location scope, but only in 
Directory and Server scope.

On the other hand, if someone implemented a complete <Method > 
container, its infrastructure could also be used to allow <If > in 
Location scope. That would be very nice, but I don't know the config 
walking/merging code well enough to have any idea about how to 
implement it.
