I'd really appreciate it if you could implement those interfaces in neon
soon. Once that's done, I can try (or maybe someone else more familiar
with Subversion) to implement this in the Subversion lib.

Right now, I've disabled SSPI support in the 1.3.x versions of TSVN:
it's better to not introduce new features which can prevent existing
users to connect to their repository without any chance of working
around it with an option/setting/whatever.
It's enabled on TSVN trunk however, so I can run tests and let others
test it as well.
