Do you have other code that works for these existing use cases?
I don't see that much duplication. This uses the existing plugin mechanism of serf, which still had defines for NTLM from before the NTLM stubs were removed on your Kerberos support branch.
That is the major reason why I didn't have to do anything but plugin an implementation.
If serf needs a better plugin mechanism we (or maybe you) should fix serf...
Calling every user scenario except using VisualSVN server broken is not an option.
We can't just call Kerberos supported and drop NTLM support if many users still use this.
Using Subversion 1.7 with neon is 100% supported and we can't just break all 1.7 users to enable support for 1.8. That is 100% against our compatibility guarantees.
