mod_lua (in trunk at least) apparently ships both a '<LuaXXX>' and 
'LuaXXX' version of several directives. It wouldn't surprise me to find 
that other third-party modules have a "block version" of a normal 
directive with the same name. I'm kind of -0.5 to making the two collide.

Is there a good reason that quoting the argument to a block gives a 
syntax error? Can we fix that instead?
