Ian Kluft proposed a more modular approach to auth back when we started
the 2.0 discussions after 1.2.0 was released.  His suggestion boils down
to having modules which don't do HTTP-things, but do lookup-things.  So
then we'd have a mod_auth, and configure it to ask mod_lookup_mysql to do
the lookup.

The result is far far far less duplicated effort.
