Agreed, as long as we rename the modules back to their old names
(e.g. authz_host back to access, authn_anon to auth_anon etc).  
Keep the hooks, that's goodness and doesn't break anyone (and
might just give a kick-in-the-pants to some authors to start using
the new hook architecture even for their 2.0 modules.)  

However, to maintain compatibility, perhaps we roll together the core
module sources (auth_basic, authn_file, authn_default, authz_user,
authz_groupfile, and authz_default) into one single mod_auth.

And if auth renamed directives, they need to be reverted on 2_0_BRANCH.

I like as well.

Actually, going back to the old auth we will need netware fixes over
on APACHE_2_0_BRANCH, but nothing too horrible.  Same on Win32.

Of course the old auth 'user' docs need to come back to 2_0_BRANCH
so that the 2_0 docs are legible to all 2.0 users.  And that work was
never really finished, so time to get busting on cvs HEAD so we start
to get close to a 2_1 developers release :-)  I suspect many how-to's
need to change for the auth module renames as well.

Just a reminder to all... where 

cvs co -d httpd-2.1 httpd-2.0   will get you cvs development head.

cvs co -r APACHE_2_0_BRANCH httpd-2.0   will get you cvs 2.0 head.

it's easy to switch, cvs up or cvs co with -A gets you head, while -r gets
you back on the branch.
