svnserve alternate authentication

Has anyone put or heard of any effort into designined an alternate
authentication interface for svnserve? Our implementation is in dire
need of such a mechanism (hundreds of users in an Oracle table used by
other development apps)

For our company repository I would like to AUTH with a random oracle
table for now and ldap in the future. This could be configured by way
the svnserve.conf file or on the command line for svnserve itself
(db,port,schema,user,table,column,wherecolumn). I am not sure the
subversion community would like to incorporate such a feature for
release versions but this is a necessity for our environment.

If there was a generic interface or an adapter pattern in place it could
be fairly easy to authenticate with an alternate datasource rather than
the users file. Does anyone have any input/information or know where to
