Bug#619408: apache2.2-common: mod_authnz_ldap require directives unrecognized if loaded after mod_authnz_default

The bug is in libapache2-mod-auth-plain, reassigning.

From the source, it looks like a possible workaround may be to use 
"AuthPlainAuthoritative off" in the directory where you want to use 

As for the module, it still uses the 2.0.x hooks which I am not very 
familiar with. Maybe adding

    if (!conf->auth_pwfile) {
        return DECLINED;

near the beginning of plain_check_user_access() does the trick. But 
this should be tested for unintended side effects.

In principle, I would recommend to update the module to use the 2.2.x 
authn provider interface. OTOH, for wheezy, I hope that we will have 
Apache httpd 2.4.x which will change the interface again.
