Move svn_authz or rename to authz_policy

svn_prop were moved to
svn_authz remains in
trac/versioncontrol. I think the justification was that
svn_authz can be used for fine-grained access control in the repository browser for any type of repository. Note however that
tracopt.perm.authz_policy can also be used for this purpose.
If the module is not svn-specific, we could consider renaming the modules to
authz_policy and moving the options from the
[svn] section to the
[repositories] section. If the module should remain svn-specific, we should consider moving it to
See also #12442.
I also plan to look at whether more code can be shared between
trac.versioncontrol.svn_authz. I would like to add an
AuthzFile class that can be used for reading and writing an
AuthzFile, which I can use in th:TracSvnAuthzPlugin (which is important because it's a dependency of th:TracHacksPlugin, but much of the functionality of TracSvnAuthzPlugin is currently broken).
