Boy do I want to know more about this.

After reading the design document some time ago, I assumed that
Subversion (Server side) provided for Authorization only.
However, I've only been able to find authentication code and that code
appeared to be client stuff only. I haven't found any code implementing
7.2.1.2 of the design document. A previous thread lead me to believe
that commit hooks are the way to handle authorization vs what is
discussed in 7.2... The only authorization I've been able to track down
was the Apache based methods. Does Subversion authorize for local
access? Hooks are fine for me but the Subversion MO makes me think that
there is an API I'm missing. What about the ACLs I've seen mentioned in
a few threads?

I actually started to develop an Apache 2.0 module to handle all of this
outside of subversion.. I have stopped for the time being as It seemed
like I was heading in the wrong direction. I need it for something else
I'm doing, so I will complete it at some point.

Please Please clarify this whole thing for me folks.
