Not really!  Having hundreds of entries in .htpasswd and .htgroup is very
inefficient.  On our system having only 100 entries in the password and
group files added over 1 second of server processing to each document
requested.  Suggest they use the DBM group/password (we have >9,000
entries with the Apache DBM code with no problems).
