+    <p>There may be times when authentication puts an unacceptable load
+    on a provider or on your network.  This is most likely to affect users
+    of <module>mod_authn_dbd</module> (or third-party/custom providers).
+    To deal with this, HTTPD 2.3/2.4 introduces a new cacheing provider
+    <module>mod_authn_socache</module> to cache credentials and reduce
+    the load on the origin provider(s).</p>
+    <p>This may offer a substantial performance boost to some users.</p>
