I've actually just been hacking up a module that does just that:
accepts a custom authentication scheme with fallback to
Basic or Digest authentication.  But that involves my new module
doing something neither of the standard modules does: namely
accept that ap_auth_type(r) might be something different to
my module's authentication scheme.

Actually I think it would be fairly straightforward to hack in to
the standard modules.  But I'd need to think that through
a little to avoid breaking things.
