IdentityCheck doesn't do the same thing as a mod_auth_ident would.  The
concept of a mod_auth_ident is frightening to me.  Come to think of it
ident doesn't seem all that interesting these days either.  Anyone relying
upon it in a production environment?

Brings to mind another survey section we could have: "things in Apache you
could live without".  :)
