Yes, you can configure this with neon > 0.26.

Almost correct: it's available in Subversion built from trunk (the
upcoming 1.5), but *not* in 1.4.x - that part has not been backported
(and there's a veto vote which prevents it from ever being backported).
With a current nightly build from trunk, it's possible to edit the
servers file and activate this. If you like to try, please report back
how it works for you.

Not the best way to do this :(
Can you try a nightly build and edit the servers file? Maybe you can get
it to work properly with http (I never tried that, and I don't have a
domain controller to test, so I have to rely on others to do that).
