subversion-authorization (other than authz)

Hello,

I checked on roadmap-site of subversiona nd can't seem to find any plans
to provide a kind of plugin-system to provide additional methods of
authorization . This is a point in which subversion is lacking to my
opinion. I could use apache to direct this, but I don't find this a good
solution. If I would use apache to limit access, those permissions
wouldn't be applied when ssh+svn would be used (which isn't the case).
However, we use trac, which also only shows the content that a user may
view, based on the authz-file. So, using apache for authorization would
allow users to view the content through the trac-browse-feature.

I could synchronize the files manually or using hooks to update the
authz-file, but I'm not sure if that covers everything (have to check) and
a plugin-system of a direct ldap-implentation would be better.

So, are there any plans to implement ldap-authorization and is there a
planning?

Thank you and greetings,

Michel
