[mod_dav_svn] authentication issues

I have a quite complex setup for my svn server, and I've looked for
help, unsuccesfully, everywhere but here.
MacOS X Server comes with a mod-auth_apple that allows very nice things
about authentication, and I need to use it, but it comes only for
Apache 1.3. So far, I was unable to compile it against Apache 2 API
(sources : http://breton.univ-lyon2.fr/~patpro/mod_auth_apple_v2/).

So I've setup a two apache server :

front apache : 1.3 with mod_auth_apple, mod_proxy, that act as a proxy
for the back apache
back apache : 2.x with mod_dav_svn

it works ok, but, as username are not forwarded from front to back
apache, mod_dav_svn is unable to guess $Author$. I can commit,
checkout, ... but the username remains blank.
I've tried to forward the username with mod_rewrite (as part of the url
from apache 1.3 to apache 2, and then removed from the url on apache 2
and injected in REMOTE_IDENT environment variable - I've tried
REMOTE_USER also) but with no success.

Is there any way I can forward the username to mod_dav_svn ?
