I hacked something like this for the old auth system but is was a ugly
hack and never was published.

I'm really interested how you configured apache to use active directory
and what else have to be done to get it work. A small howto would be
nice. :-)

I would test it at work and find a way to bypass DokuWiki's login form
in a compatible manner in return.
