case insensitive user names?

From: Beatriz Stratton <beatriz.stratton_at_telus.net>

I'm using Subversion with Apache and authentication via LDAP/Oracle Identity
Management (OID).

In the LDAP/OID directory there is a mix of upper/lower case user names.
This is beyond my control.

In Subversion, I have set up fine-grain folder access via the access file
(AuthzSVNAccessFile directive) with roles and users as per the svn book.

LDAP/OID are case insensitive. Users can type their accounts either way and
it works on other tools. But for logging into Subversion they need to type
exactly the way they exist in the access file.

Is there a way to make Subversion be case-insensitive, allowing users to
type either upper or lower case, other than duplicating user names in the
access file? Is this configurable?

Thank you,
