RFE: Supply custom authentication credentials via mod_proxy
I am using lighttpd with mod_proxy to hide a program with its own custom HTTP interface from the Internet. (I trust lighttpd more, and besides lighttpd is already exposed).
However, the said program is very primitive - it only accepts a single HTTP username/password.
I would like lighttpd/mod_proxy to be able to supply a different set of HTTP auth credentials than were received from the Internet. i.e. I would like to configure lighttpd to use a htdigest file, and then if authentication succeeds, proxy the requst with a fixed username/password on HTTP basic auth.

I am interested in this, too.
Is there really no way to achieve what we want?

mod auth can authenticate using the credentials supplied from the internet.
mod_setenv can set request headers (and replace existing ones) with your intended auth for the backend
