Oh, I mean that DAV has its own provider scheme that is completely
separate from aaa.  See modules/dav/main/providers.c - the code
in modules/aaa/auth_provider.c is essentially a cut-and-paste of
the DAV code.  Also see dav_cmd_dav in modules/dav/main/mod_dav.c.
("DAV filesystem", "DAV SVN", etc.)

Hope that makes my last post clearer.  While I do want to make
mod_dav use these new providers in the long-run, mod_dav has its
own independent provider API for a different purpose.  We can take
this opportunity to merge them together.  -- justin
