Managing users

I'm looking for the easiest way to manage (add/remove) subversion users.
I was hoping to find some way to hook into their NT login and password
via the domain controllor, but the current method (sspi, etc) seems
rather unsupported/unmaintained, so I don't feel comfortable going in
that direction.

The next best option to me seems to be using svnserve and accounts that
have SSH access. I assume this would be done via local or NIS users.
But the problem is I don't want to give users local access to login and
run commands on the server. Is there a way to create users that can be
used for svn only, but can't be used to login to the system and get a
shell? Something like setting their shell to /dev/null?

I'm going to do some testing on my own, but thought someone else may have
run into this already.

Thanks in advance.
