There is nothing that *requires* the author name to be the same thing as the
account name, it just easier that way. Arrange to have the author name in an
environment variable and create an alias (or wrapper script) which does the
moral equivalent of

        alias svn='svn --username=$AUTHOR'

and it will just work fine. Set up your authorization based on author names not
usernames and you are golden.
