Arg, I missed that. 

I just took Clif's, separated it out into ap_md5.c, ap_sha1.c and created
an extra 'ap_checkpass.c' which just contains the passwd validator for
MD5, crypt(), plain and SHA1. Only the latter get's ref-ed from the
modules mod_auth, mod_auth_db etc.

Looks like I have to restart this.
