That sounds like a good idea. Basically the only thing my patch does is remove the old coverting code and renumbering the attributes. But it should be possible to do both.... I'll look into it when I get back to work on monday

  There's no harm in having both.

  That was me.

  I haven't looked at RFC 4590, but if the old digest attributes can
be modified to look like the new ones, that would appear to be a
solution.  i.e.

  authorize: if old-style, re-format, and make check items as old
  authenticate: do new-style.  If check item is marked as old,
                send response in old format.
