   Speaking of authz rewrite, currently the directives 'authtype',
'authname' and 'require' are all implemented in the core module.  This
just doesn't seem like the right place for them so I am considering
moving the directives to mod_authz_host.  This will also facilitate the
conversion of the 'require' directive into a provider vector for
authorization which is the next step.  Unfortuately the values for these
directives are stored in the core module struct and are still tied into
core.  So the first stage will probably just leave the values there
until they can be cleanly broken out when 'satisfy' is also reworked.
