hmm, although "$user:$realm" semantically _is_ the key, that causes the 
problem, that mod_authz_dbm won't support it (it currently doesn't support 
digest authentication anyway). What would be the best variant?

- do some magic, i.e. if AuthType digest then use "$user" and 
"$user:$realm" as lookup key (in which order?)

- make it configurable (additional argument to AuthDBMGroupFile?)

- consider a provider mechanism for authorization modules, too?

My favourites are the second or third option :)
better ideas?
