I don't know of one through svn itself. For the htpasswd/Apache route,
it's external of SVN anyway I believe.

For my setup, I wrote up a small perl CGI to allow users
to change their own password. If anyone's interested, BTW:
http://www.kluge.net/~felicity/random/htpasswd-pl.txt (I also setup an
.htaccess to require the users authenticate using the svn auth file,
and granted sudo NOPASSWD privs to change the auth file -- YMMV for
your environment...)

Still working out in my head a way to grant "department admin" access to
a group of people to create accounts/etc for people in their department,
as well as repo/directory access... If someone happens to already have
something like this and is willing to share... ;)
