The patch looks technically correct, but I don't understand why it is
needed. Can you explain why it is needed?

It sounds to me as if you'd like to forward authentication requests
from SASL to PAM. Why can't you achieve this by configuring SASL
appropriately, without changing svn?

(Note: I don't know much about SASL).

Thanks,
Stefan
