http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/auth.html#digestcaveat mentions
<<The moral of this is that if you have content that really needs to be kept
secure, use SSL.>>

I'd assume that the same applies for "basic" too ==> therefore my suggestion:
Add the same suggestion there too (and perhaps amend it with "depending on key
sizes and encryption algorithm used, this can be seen as roughly equivalent to
the security achieved by openssh plus a password - possibly even better because
the server's public key is most likely certified by a 'trusted' CA")!

I am happy to provide a patch to the referenced URL as a suggestion, provided
plain html is the right format, otherwise, let me know which xml- or alike file
I have to work on.
