Sure.  You can put multiple auth: lines in one auth block, even.  Although
you probably only need one password file, because you can give access
based on the username.

Then in your access blocks specify whatever access you want based on
users: (which will come from the usernames specified in your password
files), or key: if you want to match one auth block with one access block
regardless of username.
