The way I got around this when I was first working on it was to simply map
imported/w3c onto a subdirectory of the document root in apache; it's a two
line change.

For some time I've toyed with the idea of changing the DocumentRoot to just
be LayoutTests/, so that any test could be run over http directly. A lot of
tests and test results would need to be updated for this, but I think it
could simplify the test organization a fair amount and open up some
interesting possibilities.
