FWIW, I use LDAP authentication against the corporate Active Directory
- so I don't have to worry about user names and passwords.

I've a fairly simple CGI script that takes a project name and some
user-ids. When the user hits 'submit', it creates the
/project-name/trunk /../tags /../branches structure (I use many
projects in the one repository solution), and then automatically edits
the authorization file allowing the users specified access to the new
project.

If more users subsequently need access, the file has to be edited
manually, but it's a start.
