443/htpasswd/mod_dav is on the gen two plan. I've never build apache2,
and I can expect some trial and error with both apache2 and mod_dav,
but I've got a set of other things that don't give me time in the day
to, well you know, and this is a no mistakes, regulated production

Anybody want to demo mod_dav and/or write up a cheat sheet? I spent
:20 trying to get apache21 to build on DFLY but there is something
wrong with perl, so I've never had 2.1 up at all...
