   I didn't anticipate any of this making it into 2.2 anyway and the
soonest would be 2.4.  The AuthType directive could remain for backwards
compatibility although it would probably do nothing.  Maybe even produce
a message in the error log stating that it has been deprecate in favor
of the AuthxxxProvider directives.  Then in 3.0, it could be removed
completely.
