Its often needed to generate an Apache password for authentication.

Therefore I've created a patch for the Apache2 filter and handler module:
I have successfully tested this patch on NetWare platform;
and it should work on all other platforms too.
Here's a test script to verify the new function:
would be great if this could make it into next release.
