It's relatively easy to write a custom authz provider for your local needs. You can use existing
authn module(s) to determine who's making the request, and the authz module just contains
whatever allow/deny logic is specific to your site.

You might also be able to do something with the (new in 2.4.x) expression syntax, depending
on what logic you need: <>

A third approach is to use mod_fcgi's ability to delegate just the authnz decision to an fcgi
daemon, but once authorized to process the request with apache. I haven't tried that.
