Just a Q. Does this mean that the use of /etc/passwd as the user/pass
db for svnserve is impossible before we get SSL/TLS support?

(I have been waiting for just that feature and thought SASL would give
it. In my setting on-the-wire security is not important, so plaintext
passwds would not be a (huge) problem.)
