David, thanks for your answer. How soon is soon?

Basically, our system users use svn+ssh since that allow us not to send
cleartext passwords. Besides that, we want to allow non-system users to
read-only access our rep, without having to create a system account for
them, and without allowing anonymous access. This is the reason I
thought using svn would help us. I don't know if this answer your question.
