Subject Re: AuthProviderAlias and mod_authn_file

This went first to users@, but it appears that the auth-fu isn't  
strong there right now. ;-)

I was hoping that someone (Brad?) might be able to assist me with  
this. I was trying to come up with a non-LDAP example for the  
documentation, since this seems a really useful feature that should  
be accessible to folks that don't use LDAP. But so far no joy.
