lua docs does not tell that i should set AuthType anywhere searching for
it on:

So is this a *must* have to set additionally? Shouldn't it be better
than if either httpd errors out if it finds one of those lua auth
handler directives without an AuthType? Or maybe just set one implicitly
to e.g. AuthType LUA when configuration is parsed?

And i am curious - why its dangerous? If it is dangerous - shouldn't the
docs have some note about this added?
Reading them i was under the impression - and because httpd does not
bail about it - that its not needed using the lua handlers.

kind regards
