One very good reason for this would be to handle trusted local LAN
users differently from remote WAN users. We run both svnserve for the
local LAN users, and HTTPS over Apache with LDAP authentication for
remote users. I find svnserve is a little faster on LAN connections,
and HTTPS is just far more convenient than svn+ssh for our off-site
contractors. If we allowed any WAN anonymous reads, we would probably
do that over Apache HTTP without LDAP.
    There is some overlap in the user lists, since some users are
allowed to work from home on occasion. For these users, I hope to
eventually have LDAP authentication set up for both svnserve and
Apache, each using a different permissions group. Does anyone know the
current state of PAM or LDAP support in svnserve auth right now?
