>Description:
The following does not work:

   http://www.snert.com/~chrisma/server-info

Server-info, server-status, and other handlers that would have been defined as
URIs with <location /cool-handler> sections are not found when the URI prefix is
/~user.  

Everything after the /~user should be considered like a URI, be it a file or
a module handler.  mod_userdir should perform a subrequest on the remaining URI
to determine if its a file or handler.  If it is a handler, it should be the
module's responsibility to determine whether or not it processes the request
in relation to users.

This issue came up during the development of mod_throttle 3.0, where I want to
have a special handler to return the status of an induhvidual server or user.
>How-To-Repeat:
Install something like server-info or server-status. Request a URL something
like this:  http://www.snert.com/~chrisma/server-info

Not as yet.
