Apache documentation does not specify if a , or space should be used for multiple group names
and some modules implement it as spaces and others impliment it as commas. eg:
require group snet-lp snet-dp snet-fp

mod_auth_dbm.c would only see the snet-lp group and would deny access to anyone in the snet-dp
or snet-fp groups, while mod_auth_msql.c would work fine for any of the the 3 groups.

1) decide if the seperator should be a , or a space
2) Document it properly in core
3) check and change mod_auth*.c (usualy there is a getword a few lines above the "user %s
not in right group" error message and you just need to change the third parameter of the getword)
