thanks for the confirmation and the example.

I now have my Authorizer code and have the authentication happening.

Listen *:9000
<VirtualHost *:9000>
    <Location />
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        AuthType Digest
        AuthName "Manager System"
        AuthUserFile /home/bscott/Work/httpd-fcgid-test/auth/http.passwd

        Require onelan magic

What I have learned about the code is this:

* If any Require directive is present a 401 is returned if no 
credentials are sent
* If any Require directive is present and credentials are present they 
are checked and the username is set in r.
* If any Require directive is present and its not processed by any other 
authorizer the FastCgiAuthorizer is run

It would be nice to reserve a Require entity name for use by fast CGI.
The code as written today does not care if a Require entity name is 
processed by any module.
Use of valid-group that sound officialbut is simply a Require entity 
name that no module supports.
