I don't think that's possible. SSPI uses the anonymous user (the GUEST
account) or the currently logged on windows user. If it's possible to
specify the user it authenticates with, where would it get the password
for it? It only can do that by using the already logged on user and the
password used to log the user on to the workstation.

I'm 90% certain that SSPI can't give that level of control :)

For those cases, you could provide the command line params
--username myname --password mypassword

If those are present, then Subversion must tell neon to not authenticate
with SSPI in the first place but only use basic authentication.
