svn + apache + dbd backend

I'm trying to have access permissions using apache2.2, svn, and dbd.

MY QUESTION: Is there something in mod_authz_svn that lets you read
permissions out of a SQL database (say via dbd)?

My modules: auth_basic, dav, dav_svn, authz_svn, dbd, authn_dbd
I use SVNParentPath to serve multiple projects.

For authentication I'm using something like the bdb example at:

I currently use AuthzSVNAccessFile to specify the access rights of
those users, but I'm interested in moving that into my dbd database.

I've read the apache configuration manual at
it only covers basic file fine grain authorization.

Searchign for 'dbd' and 'mysql' on the mailing lists did not bring up
useful results.

How would you do it? Is there a REALLY GOOD REASON not to attempt
this other then a mild to medium increase in db hits?
