Neither mod_dav_svn nor mod_authz_svn do authentication, apache2
does. So you're free to use whatever authentication apache2 makes
available. So it's fine to get your users from any source.

The problem is that mod_authz_svn *only* understands its own group
definitions, not ones from other sources. There's an enhancement
issue filed on that, I think.
