By "SVN" I was sort of abstractly referring to Subversion as a whole,not just the client.Anyhow, I haven't looked at the code for how authentication works inSubversion at all, so I'm kinda wondering if there wouldn't be an"easy" way of basically handing off responsibility for authenticationand access control to some arbitrary external system.
How does mod_authz_svn work?

I'd be using Apache for this project anyways.
