I had the exact same problem when I needed an authenhandler which 
would do both NTLM authentication and some backup authentication 
for people who have not authenticated for the Windows network - like me 
as a linux user.

This works for me:

        <Location /pyauthtest >
                AuthType                Py
                Options                 Indexes ExecCGI
                PythonAuthenHandler     pyauthhandler
                PythonDebug             On
                PythonOption            Groups Foo,Bar,Baz
                PythonOption            ServerRoot  /var/www/instance
                require                 valid-user

I'm sorry but I cannot show the python code without the permission of 
my employer.
