+1. Note that part of the trouble is


which is kind of a core thing, or as least somethign shared among multipel
AAA things.

So one either needs a shared 'fan out' on AAA level for the various
authType(s) - or alternatively to completely kill AuthType and let each of
the AAA modules provide something like AuthBasic on/off, AuthDigest on/off
and let each provide their -own- variant on AuthName; i.e. AuthBasicRealm
or wathever. Killing AuthtType is good in that it propably lets you
combine different Accesses with Auth much cleaner.
