Subject: Authorizer under Apacher 1.2.1

I know that is says this in the documentation:

5.mod_fastcgi does not implement the Authorizer or Filter roles described
in the FastCGI
       specification. However, you can approximate the Filter role using
Apache's Action directive to
       route requests to a FastCGI Responder. See the documentation for
mod_actions for information
       on the Action directive.

But has the status of authorizer changed in the latest 2.0b ver. of  Fast
CGI- Are there any known work arounds for using the Authorizer role with
Apache? Or do I have to write a seperate mod_auth to do this?
