External Authentication

Hey,
I'm working on a project-management-type app, and it would be
_really_ nice to, some how (any how!) get the subversion server
(either SVN or SVN+Apache) to authenticate against our internal
database.

In the past we've simply been re-writing the authz/htpasswd files
used by svn/apache with each internal permissions change... But
that's not ideal.

So would it be somehow possible to ask svnserve to authenticate
people against something dynamic? Failing that, would it be
absolutely ridiculous to write a wrapper around svnserve, so requests
come in like this: client --> our app --> svnserve (where 'our app'
is a python-based web app)?

Thanks!
David
