Debugging output for processing of AuthzSVNAccessFile similar to mod_rewrite, to help diagnose when you've got your config file wrong

      I was having some issues with permissions and my AuthzSVNAccessFile, and I was
      sure I'd made a silly mistake with the file somewhere (and indeed I had).
      However, whilst trying to figure out what was wrong with my authorisation file,
      I tried to turn on extra debugging for the parsing of the file, in much the same
      way as I might do when debugging a mod_rewrite rules set problem.
      When I googled for how to do this, I found lots of other people asking how they
      could do the same thing, and a few responses saying that it isn't possible.
      So, it would be great if we could turn on a debugging flag in our apache config
      file, and have mod_authz_svn give mod_rewrite style log output to show how it
      processes the file, and why things match/don't match.
      That way, when you forget to list someone in a group, or have a typo in your
      path, it'll be much much easier to find out what you've done wrong...!
