My objective is to have SymlinkIfOwnerMatch apply; I actually did try
putting -FollowSymLinks in a top level <Directory /> config, but the SSI
include *still* followed the symlink.

My question is whether or not it is expected that SSI includes will ignore
the Apache symbolic link following configuration, or if it is a bug? (Or
if I'm just doing something stupid, which is always a possibility)...
