It was not included because, as commented in the report, I think that the
same effect can be achieved by using the existing Auth API, without making
changes to mod_sql's API.

The Developer's Guide has a lot of documentation (although it can always
be improved; just let me know of any questions or things you'd like to see
added to it!). An existing module that you might be able to use as an
example is the mod_auth_pam module, which ONLY handles the "check" Auth
If that doesn't provide everything, feel free to contact me offlist and
I'll provide more example code.
Drink to me only with thine eyes,
And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss but in the cup
And I'll not look for wine.
