My problem is that I don't know much about how neon is used in
Subversion, where to even start.
Joe Orton implemented two new functions in neon 0.26 just for this
reason (because I mentioned the problem Subversion has):
"* Added functions which give control over authentication protocol use:
  - ne_add_server_auth(), ne_add_proxy_auth()"

I always hoped that those of you who know neon better than me would
implement this. I guess it can be tested even without a windows domain
(just try disabling other auth protocols).

Also please don't forget that I have my own project to work on, which
keeps me busy several hours a day. I really can't do much more without
going insane here :)
