Getting User Name With Apache Basic Authentication

I would like to set up password protected directories for my Web site (Apache) using the htpasswd/.htaccess. This means that whenever a user requests a page in the protected directory, they get prompted for a userid/password. I would like to capture the userid that the user enters from within my Python CGI script. This seems like it would be a common thing to do, but I can't find anything in the Python library or this newsgroup that addresses it. Anyone have any suggestions?
