	Yeah, I thought so too when I realized that all those auth
modules had to be changed. By that time however it was too late, I had
changed everything, and decided I should get to bed kinda soon. =)
mod_auth_msql for example has *tons* of stuff. . I wa actually
thinking of a function call you can use to get the auth_failed
response code.. auth_failed_response(r) would bea short function which
returned one or the other.

	That would be good. To clarify, I didn't actually write the
core portion of this patch. It was one of our 'nameless/anonymous'
employees because we had to test to see if SPWP worked with 407 proxy
auth. I beleive he checked the RFC to figure out how to do this.
