Okay, let me restate it:

If you have nested Locations: /foo/* and /foo/bar/*, and you need to have
different htgroups controlling them, what configuration allows you to have
the group permissions for /foo/bar/* override those for /foo/*? In other
words, I want general access for /foo/*, except for certain directories
which must have tighter access controls.

My experience has been that of the ordering is to define the Location for
/foo/*, then the Location for /foo/bar/*, then no access is given to
/foo/bar/* at all.

If the two are reversed, then it's as if the /foo/bar/* directive isn't
