In a nutshell:

  * gstein is talking about "authentication". There is authentication
    code dribbled throughout our client app, libsvn_client, and
    libsvn_ra_*. Ultimately, it's all just a way of getting
    authentication data into neon, so neon can repsond to
    authentication challenges from apache. This is the stuff gstein
    wants to split out.

  * authorization is currently all via httpd.conf, or via repository
    pre/post-commit 'hook' scripts. After 1.0, we'll be working on
    ACLs within the svn filesystem.
