I have solved the domain/username case problem by patching the
mod_auth_sspi to accept a new option called SSPIUsernameCase which
accepts the values 'upper' and 'lower'.
If this option is specified in the Apache config file the mod_auth_sspi
module translates the received domain/username to either upper or lower
case, which makes Apache report the domain/username to the mod_authz_svn
module either in the specified case.
