FWIW, if you access using svn+ssh with a ssh client and server
daemon which supports Windows authentication, it achieves a
similar result as the Apache sspi mod.

I recently tested this using WinSSHD and Tunnelier (bitwise.com)
and it works well for svn command line and okay for TortoiseSVN.

Downside with TortoiseSVN is you get the tunnelier (non-interactive)
DOS dialog box appearing during processing, I guess the ideal scenario
would be for TortoisePLink to have an option to pass the current users
credentials, but I have no idea how much of a job this would be?
