No, you don't *have* to split them into different modules.  One 
module could register for both authn/authz providers.  The only 
reason we split was because their wasn't a lot of shared code between 
the other auth modules.  I think mod_auth_ldap has a lot of shared 
code in its authn/authz split.  Perhaps a mod_auth_ldap core module 
that exports the basic LDAP functionality, then a mod_authn_ldap and 
mod_authz_ldap module that does the direct auth code?  I dunno.  --
