If the apache LDAP authentication module is capable of filling in an
authenticated username in the apache request structure ('r->user'), then
mod_authz_svn can control permissions to specific
repositories/directories for each user. I think people have done this
successfully.

When it comes to groups, you're out of luck. mod_authz_svn has its own
notion of groups, and there's no standard apache mechanism for
mod_auth_ldap to communicate a "group" to some other module.
