I know, but our company plan to offer hosting service with use of
svn database for each user; with hundreds (thousands?) of users =>
hundreds of <Location> directives in the config-file, how long will
the restart take? That's one thing, the another is that I really don't
think that it's impossible to map new dirs in run-time (AliasMatch
directive does it, don't it?).

I see. But why it's impossible?

No, I've tried. Thanks anyway.
