Description : Yolo style authentication for Apache 2
The authn_yolo module is an authentication provider for Basic
Authentication in the Apache2 web server. It accepts any combination of
user and password.
Sometimes this is useful when testing or building a proof of concept,
since there's no need to generate a htpasswd file etc. It can also be
used to pass a user name to Apache in a scenario where verification of
the credentials is delegated to a reverse proxy in front of Apache.

So, this apache2 authentication module doesn't do more than just...
It can be used like this:
There seems to be no other way in apache2 to end up with the same
result, allowing everything, but still ending up with the provided
username in r->user.
The actual use case for this (at $dayjob, at Mendix) is to be able to do
all authentication and authorization work in nginx with custom code
using lua etc etc... and still have apache2 running libapache2-mod-svn
behind it, using the user name from the basic auth header as svn commit
