mod_headers won't do programmatic things like Base64-decoding for you.
And it's a mismatch for the authn framework.  mod_rewrite could do
that for you, but that way madness lies (it would be harder work
than writing a new module).

mod_auth_form from Apache 2.3 and up gets authentication from
tokens like that.  It might meet your needs.
