I don't know of any drop-in ways to do this, although it would be a great
open source project.

When I had to do something similar a couple years ago, I used a script to
dynamically create the directories and write an .htaccess file to each of
them. It seemed better than having a monolithic config, if for no other
reason than I didn't want to have to restart the server with each change.

Same script modified an .htpasswd file, adding the username and password for
the user. I like the LDAP approach better, though, since you probably
already have a directory of users.
