Feature Request (?) - Authorization hook

From: Eric Lemes <ericlemes_at_gmail.com>

Hello there,

I don't know if someone has another way to handle this, but I'm trying to
integrate the "AuthzSVNFile" with windows Active Directory. My organization
has all the developer information, groups, projects, everything inside AD.
And for SVN administration, we need to replicate this information in the
authz file, and it's growing very fast.

I was thinking in some tool to "generate" this authz file (very ugly, but
works), but if svn has something like an authorization hook, I can write
something that gets information from AD "on-the-fly".

1) User authenticate itself in apache via sspi
2) SVN fires the authz hook with user + repos path
3) The hook reply's the access level (no access, read/write, read) for the
specified path

Any ideas?
