Support for MD5 Digest authentication would be a major
coup.

    We'll keep this open, but it's not going to be something we
    will be adding soon, if at all.

    Digest authentication is much different than basic
    authentication, and I'm not sure how we can roll both of
    them into one module. Even apache has two different modules
    (mod_auth and mod_digest) to handle the differences.

    Additionally, there is a bug in MS's Internet Explorer when
    using digest authentication - it does not produce the
    correct value if you have parameters in your request.

    But we will look at it and see if it is possible.

    Compatability with IE is not important - I'm only interested in
    keeping passwords secure on our LAN.

    Hi Eric (at least I think this is Eric),

    I understand you might not be interested in compatibility
    with IE, but as this is a public module, we need to be
    concerned with what everyone uses. IE is still the most
    widely used browser in the world, and we can't come out with
    a module which breaks when using IE.

    As I said - we'll look into it, but won't promise anything.
