I'm going a few rounds at the moment with a user that's confused between
ap_auth_type(r) and r->ap_auth_type, and why ap_auth_type(r) needs to be set
at all if he's writing his own non-basic-non-digest authentication scheme.
making the authtype indigenous to the provider mechanisms make a decent
amount of sense to me.
