mod_authz_svn & db's

Hi, I'm looking for any help in hooking up svn authentication &
authorization to a mysql db.

 

We are using subversion as a backbone for a web-app that is handling
document management services.

 

We already have our users and access rights stored in a MySQL db - these are
being used by our web-app; and now are hoping to expose access to the
repositories directly via WebDAV-svn.

 

We can create views or new tables in really any format - and we can match
the style of the mod_authz_svn config file, but I can find a module that
will connect the db to apache/mod_authz_svn.

 

As a second *dumb* question, what mod should we use to do the authentication
against MySQL - I have read this is already possible, but I don't know which
mod to use?

 

So to clarify, I need to know how (mods / pipes / workarounds) to use MySQL
driven authentication & authorization for multiple svn repositories.

 

Thanks!
