REMOTE_USER in PHP should be the same as req.user in mod_python. The req.user attribute actually is 'user' attribute of internal Apache request_rec structure. It is this value that is used to set REMOTE_USER in CGI variable environments and presumably PHP. This attribute isn't restricted to just HTTP Basic/Digest authentication. Any authentication handler should be setting it correctly, whether that be some special Windows specific authentication mechanism or otherwise. Do you have a Windows specific authentication handler enabled in your Apache configuration?
