not really.  The problem is that the auth rules change for files && locations
- so as far as your auth module is concerned there is no reliable way to
assume it doesn't need to authenticate again.  We've tried to come up with
some solutions, but none are reliable.  With a little more help from the
apache core it *might* be possible - but this would probably be a big job.
 thats my 2p.

you're best bet is to have you're auth module cache user properties so that
it can be fast on subsequent auth requests.
