Hmm... from what I gather from the docs, it is only parsed and executed when
a document affected by the directive is parsed by PHP. I could be wrong,

As stated, the problem is mainly static contents (images, PDF-files etc)
that I wish to keep static, yet have custom code executed in the
authorization stage of the request. In such way, that if the custom code
"returned" 403, my standard 403 error document would be served.
