Someone pointed out that the config directives changed in 2.4.  This is
what I have now.

<Files ~ "^\.ht">
    Require all denied
    Satisfy All

This works.  I suppose a Location directive would override this but I
don't have one that relaxes this restriction.

I tried the same for my .svn directories but that doesn't work.
Obviously "Files" works on files and not directories.  So I tried the

<Directory ~ "^\.svn">
    Require all denied

This doesn't work.  I believe that this is because I have other
Directory directives that override it.  Would the above work if changed
Directory to a Location directive?  My impression from reading the docs
is that Location is always rooted to the top level.  Will it DTRT if I
leave off the leading slash?
