[Mono-list] Using BasicAuthenticationModule

Is nobody doing this?  I haven't received any replies
yet.  Is anybody using authentication of any kind
(that isn't the built-in Apache authentication)?

In any case, I've managed to now get this working with
Apache's basic auth module but this isn't great
because I now have to maintain two password lists- one
for Apache and one for my app.  That really sucks.

As an alternative, I'd like to find out who updated
this web page last so I can e-mail them about this:

Does anyone know how I can find that out?
