Okay. So, sorry if this is a stupid question, but is it therefore not
possible to compile a SASL-enabled svnserve and point it at a regular
svnserve password file using svnserve.conf?

That is, SASL takes over the entire authn process, and you either have a
SASL-enabled server that uses SASL, or a non-SASL-enabled server that
uses the 'passwd' setting in svnserve.conf?
