What about using mod_auth_anon? Set up an anonymous user that doesn't
require a password, but does require them to type in the name... then
use the name in mod_authz_svn?

Question about this: the Apache manual for authentication modules states
that they're applied in the order specified in modules.c. In a
pre-compiled Apache without the sources, how can I determine the
sequence that's been compiled in? Is there any run-time command I can use?
