David --

libsvn_auth is finished, for the moment, as a standalone library.
That is, the internal machinery seems to work, and I've written two
simple (username/password) back-end providers. I have two test
programs (in tools/examples/auth_provider) that demonstrate how to
write new providers.

My only task (from here out) is to make the existing libsvn_client and
libsvn_ra code actually *use* libsvn_auth. But that shouldn't affect
your work at all. I'm not really sure why you'd need a branch.

So by all means, add a new 'certs' credentials type to svn_auth.h, and
create a new certs_provider.c file in libsvn_auth/. You can start
writing the provider now.

Ryan -- you can also start writing a provider for your svn-agent
daemon.
