solution for slow performance of svn log under apache with NT or kerberos authentication

According to another email I read on the list archives a user reported
glacially slow performance for 'svn log' operations when the repository was
accessed through apache /and/ used NT authentication. I discovered this to
likewise be the case for kerberos authentication using mod_auth_kerb. I came
up with a solution. My solution was to hack the mod_auth_kerb module itself
and basically cache the fact that the credentials verified ok in the notes
table for the connection. This works for me nicely so I thought I'd note it
on this list and for posterity. The change was easy to make though I doubt
the mod_auth_kerb folks would be interested in a patch since caching
authentication for a connection could be viewed as insecure. So, if anyone
needs some assistance making this same patch for themselves they could email
