Note that you don't have to be root, on my system I just had to add
myself to the sasl group before I could run saslpasswd2. It doesn't
seem easy to set up a non-default sasl db though, although I agree
that would be nice.

I will say though that this isn't any more complex than our setup for
testing over ssh, or for DAV on a system where you don't have a
functional davautocheck.sh. Adding two arbitrary users to the sasl db
doesn't seem like that big a deal. They're using a realm that's
unlikely to conflict with normal use (svntest), and you only have to
do it once and then those users are there for any subsequent test you
want to run.
