Good grief.  mod_authz_host is *far* more accurate and less confusing than 

Once again, I'm against renaming this module.  If we do the authz rewrite we 
have discussed on the list recently (the last time this rename was brought 
up), it really *will* be mod_authz_host and we'd have flipped the module name 
for no reason.

Again, for those who don't actually read the mailing list and just randomly 
post stuff, the rewrite we discussed on list would combine the access_checker 
and auth_checker hook into one hook - which is how authorization should be 
partitioned anyhow.  -- justin
