Yes, but if my $some_dir is outside of any <Directory ...>  I can't include it - the
url gets prefixed with whatever <Directory > the document the user originally requested
was in,
because EVERY page on my site uses relative URLs to access site pages - it so simplifies re-basing
- and if it's inside a <Directory ...> ,  users can request it,  and you cannot create

another Sub <Directory >  for it and then say 'deny from all' for that sub-directory
 because then SSI includes are denied .  
So I create a handler :
   AddHandler ssi-fragment ".inc" ".ssi"
and
  <Directory "/var/www/my_site" ...> ...
  </Directory>
  Alias "include/" "/var/www/include/"
  <Directory "/var/www/include" ...>
   SetHandler ssi-fragment
   allow from all
  </Directory>
and my fragments are all named ".inc" ,  and ALL files under /var/www/include have the ".inc"
extension ,
and "ssi-fragment" is a c shared-library module that determines if the request came from SSI
or not; 
 if it did,  it completes the request, and if it did not, aborts the request with 403 (forbidden).
I still don't see how else to overcome this problem with apache's SSI.

All the best,
Jason
