I'd like to be able to do the following:

<LocationMatch "!^/(foo|bar)">
# access, auth, etc rules here

How else can you have a default set of rules for the entirety of a site except for a particular
set of directories? 

As there appears to be no way to explicitly say in a subdirectory to ignore the parent's authentication
rules completely (if the subdirectory wishes no authentication whatsoever), I'm at a loss
for how else one could accomplish the goal without explicitly mentioning every file in and
every subdirectory from the root.
Try, given the current available pattern matching, to authenticate all directories of a site
except for a given subset.
Expand the pattern matching engine to include a "not" character (such as the "!") so that
one could say for all things BUT the following pattern do the following.
