svn whoami?

Is there way to find out what user subversion will authenticate as from
the command line? (Cached credentials using svnserve and the built-in
authentication. No ssh.)

Basically the script needs to compare 'svn whoami' (the cached
credentials) against the owner of a server-side lock. If the usernames
match, then we steal (--force) the server lock to create a workspace
lock (it's okay to steal from yourself) before doing the check in.

Why the hoops? The source code is in a database and manipulated in the
database (instead of as a file in a subversion managed workspace.) We
use 'svn export+svn server-lock' to emulate reserved checkouts, and we
create workspaces on the fly to commit files (the source code is
exported from the database as a file.)
