Re: Writing svn-agent (Was Re: [PATCH] default to --no-auth-cache)

Just configure your server to only do Digest auth, and Neon will do that
rather than Basic. To the svn user, the two are exactly the same (user and
password).

Hmm. In fact, we should probably change our documentation examples to use
Digest configuration instead of Basic. Since we're based on Apache 2.0, then
it is known to be available (well, "most likely" available). If we get
feedback that most prepackaged Apache's aren't enabling mod_auth_digest,
then we can add an appendix or something to show how to configure Basic.

Cheers,
