I don't know of a way to test for write permission without actually changing
something since commit doesn't take a dry run option (AFAICT).

How about this idea - have a dummy repository or part of a repository that
requires authentication and authorisation to be able to read from it, assign
the same user you want to test permission for to this special area and do a
svn ls on the area at the start of your script?
