  Obviously I'd be happier if it mined the info out of a DBM file and thus 
  dbmmanage would be tweaked to handle it (i.e., giving it an 
  "adddigestuser" command or something).

The trick, of course, would be adding this functionality without
confusing people about which "adduser" command they should use (perhaps
adding records in both formats in all cases, or something) --- remember
that for Basic auth, the server doesn't have to store the password in
raw form (and doesn't), but for Digest auth it has to and does.

(BTW, this makes Digest auth records useful for Basic, but not vice
versa, assuming someone wanted to write the code).
