Thanks Christopher for this tips.

But I do not like Single-Sign-On so much. Scripts which generate Apache
configurations can be a good solution. Currently my problem is not big
enough, so that I start writing such scripts. This point from my wishlist
> * permission control delegable to some users (nice to have)
would also require, that I write a web-based or client-server-solution
so that users can configure their own Apache/WebDAV permissions.

I hoped that there are cool Apache community solutions. But there is
probably nothing. My own search was unsuccessful too.

Greetings,
Björn
