FYI: One use is in mod_auth_digest - there is a qop type "auth-int" which
does an md5-hash on the request entity, and hence mod_auth_digest needs to
be able to hook into the input processing so it can calculate and verify
the hash. Hmm, it will need a way to "interrupt" and generate a 401 or
something if the hash doesn't verify, though.
