Right.... I understand what the directives do.... doesn't what I suggested still allow that
to happen? Enclosing the directives in a "Limit GET POST" directive should mean that these
directives will be limited to GET and POST requests (which are used by web browsers), and
will not apply to PROPFIND, CHECKOUT, REPORT or other WebDAV methods that Subversion uses.

I see from the documentation that <Limit> and <LimitExcept> are designed to limit
access controls. I don't know if this means it only works for access controls. If so, what
I proposed won't work. Sorry, I haven't had time to test it myself.
