Do you have an example of where this is used in practice? The httpd docs
only say that the FakeBasicAuth option exists, but it makes no mention of
how to use it. Simply adding the option does nothing - the author stays
blank in the commit email - and adding require valid-user suddenly draws
in the need for a separate password file (which is redundant, that's what
certs and crls are for).

Any ideas?
