It doesn't, I guess. But that is what I'm concerned about. At any rate, I
really am not familiar enough with the facets of C needed to generate an
auth API, someone else can do it, but I guess I'd be more than happy to
write a mod_md5 stand-alone. Probably with just flat-file and DBM support.
I'll do that.

Okay... I wasn't sure about that, and I figured it was probably safer to 
wait until any implementation beyond what we have now is done.
