"Integrated Windows Authentication" is still authentication, and is just
another name for the NTLM method for authentication that Windows uses. The
underlying Neon libraries do not support NTLM as a method for
authentication. However, there is a solution, see below.

 You'll have to supply your domain credentials and use another proxy between
your SVN client and your real proxy.
 I was in a similar situation before, and had used ntlmaps[1], which is a
passthrough proxy server. You'll have to download Python to use it though.

You can bypass the WebDAV non-support if your proxy does support HTTPS.
Since the whole HTTP transaction (including the request line) is encrypted
under HTTPS, the proxy will simply pass everything through to the
destination host (provided of course you've already authenticated to the
proxy if need be)
