Amusing how we all end up working on the same area...

You can use apache for authentication via ldap, mysql, or files. The
mod_authz_svn currently pulls its configuration out of a file but it
could also be modified to pull its info out of mysql. Both of these
give you a 90% solution to what you want

Of course, what we really want is putting the group/ACL info directly
into the repository instead of keeping it seperate. This would allow
copying the ACL info when you copy/tag the tree which is currently one
of the biggest holes in the whole ACL story
