svnserve - Case sensitive username issue on Windows

From: Philibert Pérusse <pperusse_at_gsmproducts.ca>

Anybody got a work around to avoid svnserve to use case-sensitive usernames.
On Windows, a user might login with PHILIBERT.PERUSSE or philibert.perusse
or Philibert.Perusse without problems...
But then the credentials would fail when connecting to svnserve repositories
because the pass-db & authz files would only list "philibert.perusse"...
I certainly guess I am not the first one to have this problem. Anyone can
suggest something other than: "just tell your developers to always login
with all caps low".
