Heh, but anything you'd submit wouldn't be released earlier than the
current SASL work... I have no idea about the timeline; probably not
within half a year, but it could be sooner, given enough requests.
We're focusing on getting 1.4 out first...

Well, many SASL libraries offer many different databases to
authenticate against without any coding; the pipe solution would
require coding on your part to do the actual auth request...

Anyway, if you want to hack in an AD request into svnserve, that's
great! Please post your patch here for others to use while svnserve
isn't ready yet. You may want to look at the current SASL work to look
how/where to hack.
