NT Domain authentication with Subversion

Searching the archives, I've become confused about how best to allow Windows
domain users to have Subversion access.

I see on http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06.html that it says any form
of Apache authentication will work: mod_dav_svn and I presume mod_ntlm
and/or mod_sspi. I also see that a bug now marked fixed says these methods
work as of 1.3RC3. http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1844

Finally, there's this information on TortoiseSVN:
http://tortoisesvn.sourceforge.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/ch03.html#tsv
n-serversetup-apache-5

This makes me think I'll be able to do this with SVN 1.3.x, after making
sure I have Apache set up correctly.

I'm curious: has anyone else done this recently? I see that it appears to
work with the command line client and TortoiseSVN; should it also work with
SmartSVN or other svn clients?

I'm migrating from CVS on Solaris (with NIS authentication) to SVN or CVSNT
on Solaris. Most developers here use Windows, but there are some Solaris and
a few Linux users. My manager really, really wants to be able to use NT
domain AD logins to allow access to source control for the Windows users.
I'd like to make this work with SVN. I'd love some input from this list.

Thanks, folks.
