Directives are not directly excuted, they supply configuration to many
different modules.

Those modules all run in different stages of Apache processing.  They
can ask early, late, or before or after other modules they know about.
Sometimes, the order is undefined and can change over time.

So there is really no general rule other than how configurations
should be merged other than the precedence of the various
configuration sections:

For example, DirectoryIndex specified multiple times might implicitly
add to the list, but using Require implicitly starts over fresh.
