Is it possible to have .htaccess pull the passwords from two .htpasswd files in different locations?

Like so

AuthUserFile /home/data/.htpasswd
AuthUserFile /home/other/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "RESTRICTED"
AuthType Basic
<Limit GET PUT POST>
require valid-user
</Limit>


or something like that?

It's done through multiple .htaccess files.  Have a different .htaccess file in each password protected directory and call the required .htpasswd file from there.
