Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50377] <Files*> and <Location*> sections seem to completely miss how multiple of each of them are merged

btw: IMHO even the sentence "Later sections override earlier ones." does more
harm than good.

It's not clear whether this means Directory/Files/Locations or only
Files/Locations and it's also not clear whether "later" means "above/below" in
the config file or at a "deeper" position (e.g. when <Files> is nested in

When I have e.g.
<Directory />
  A param1
<Directory />
  A param2

Is the effect:
A param2
or just:
A param2

For at least <Location> the later seems to be the case (completely ignoring
previously matching sections, and not just overriding them)?
