My understanding is that those are two different things -
authz_svn_module & AuthzSVNAccessFile are access control _inside_ svn

AuthGroupFile is implemented in mod_access in Apache.

Yes, I do all the access control in apache using http authentication.
This means that the only (write) access to the repository has to be
through http - no svnserve, no file access (we actually do some
read-only access on the server itself through file access, but _never_
write access). I'd be happy to post examples...
