In the way that you will need a way to create/update/delete user
accounts that are available to both SVN and this web application. Since
Apache limits what you can do in terms of user authentication -
basically some variation of a password file or LDAP - and the former
doesn't allow you to store all user information in a central location
(e.g. username/password in a file, and username/user attributes in a DB
table) which might be construed as not elegant, and since LDAP does both
rather well, I thought it would be an interesting approach. It would
also enable integration with an Active Directory if and when this
project ever reaches a point where it is deployed in a corporate
environment.

Cheers,
Rob
