We have a naming problem.  Provider is meaningless.

Is a provider Basic, Digest?

Or is a provider File, DBM, LDAP?

If you mean the former, I'm right there with you.  However, that
won't work on antique (2.0, even 1.3) auth modules, so my concept
is still valid.  It should simply be replaced for httpd-2.0 with
something clearer :)
