As was pointed out on users@ there might also be a mention that apache
uses prefixes to work out what sort of 'cipher' it's looking at, but I
don't know that part of the code.

Done. It was there because this isn't my work, but I can see that
keeping authorship references in comments can get unwieldy.

Which is entirely correct :-)

Again, it's a bit of a cop-out, I considered that there needn't be so
many programming language examples but this is Tom's work and I left
those parts be. I'd reduce it to a single language but which? Having
ruby in the manual makes me smile anyway.

Yep. You prompted Tom to write this on users@ so know the relevance. I
figured that mod_authn_dbd and somewhere on /howto/auth.html would do,
anywhere else?

I've asked this several times (here and on IRC) and got no response,
but let's try again. Are there any other pages on the wiki that
qualify for translation, or are they largely off-topic/too temporal
for the main docs?
