But isn't the issue they are talking about the "automatic" SSPI
authentication where the username/passwords are all exchanged
automatically based on your login to the Windows client? Yes, LDAP
authenticates against AD, but the problem is that Subversion will prompt
for and cache in plain text your AD password. With SSPI it is all handled
at a lower level so the user would never be prompted and nothing would
need to be cached.

There is an SSPI module for Windows Apache, but not other platforms.
