Wow, that is detailed! Thanks for the post - I'm hoping to move our
SVN authentication to LDAP this year and it would be terrific if I
could move the authorization into LDAP as well. It means less work for
me - I'm the SVN admin but someone else does LDAP :)

2 questions:

1) How is performance, as compared to using SVN's built-in Authz
stuff? Faster? Slower? I know a lot of path-based checks can cause
some operations to be slower.

2) If you have a change to path access (which groups can access which
paths), doesn't this require a restart of Apache?
