Either do what you don't like or "simply" have multiple configurations,
one for each protected area which may later be merged.

I'd rather hate to have to keep track dozens of .htaccess passwords with
Ht://Dig configuration (let alone they need to be written down in the
configuration files in an unencrypted manner which I'd regard as far
serious than having one virtual user with access permissions to all
