Hmmm, yeah, I know where you're coming from.

The original point of libsvn_svr was to provide:

   * broad access-control policies to the repository

   * a system of mapping multiple users and authentication methods to
     a *single* filesystem user. (i.e. if an FS node has an ACL
     describing what user "jimb" can or can't do, how do we know that
     that "jimb@red-bean.com/ssh" is the same person as
     "jimb@redhat.com/kerberos"?)

The layer was thrown out because we decided that Apache could
essentially do these things.

But now it seems that libsvn_ra_local will *lack* the ability to do
these things!
