Probably not worth changing, as it would be disruptive, but:
  • our md5 encoding is actually equivalent to the Apache "Digest" authentication generated with htdigest.
  • our crypt-md5 has no equivalent in apache docs.
  • Apache MD5 generated with htpasswd -m option has no equivalent in Foswiki.

It would be easier for admins if our terminology aligned better with Apache terminology.
