1.5.0 (and its prereleases) should support PKCS#11-provided (smartcard)
SSL client certs if you build your client to use the Neon HTTP library.
See http://svn.collab.net/viewvc/svn?view=rev&revision=29421 for
details. I don't know much about smartcard support myself, by the way,
I'm just quoting from http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/CHANGES (I
searched for "smartcard" in that file).

Please take any followup to users_at_subversion.tigris.org, as we try to
reserve the dev@ list for development of Subversion only. That is, even
though it is likely that some people here on dev@ can answer technical
questions about Subversion, this is not a forum they joined for that
purpose. We're not 100% strict about this, as you can see, which is why
I'm happy to answer your question (as best I can). But please keep any
follow up off the dev@ list, unless it has to do with the development of
Subversion (e.g., you find a bug in the smartcard support or something).

Thanks, and good luck,
-Karl
