Except working out how to get GSSAPI running is something that is
easily available. My current theory is that I could get MIT's
kerberos and build the GSSAPI plugin from the sasl library. I hope to
test this theory one day soon. However there's still not much on how
to configure it once I do that - and even then it looks like SVN
windows binaries were built with Studio .NET 2002 (from the version of
msvcrt.dll it uses) which I've not run for years now so I'd have to
build my own SVN from source - oh and then a build which matches with
tortoisesvn as well which means people can't just download the usual
installer from the web and have it work

So unless there are simple instructions for getting this done that
i've missed then the GSSAPI option isn't really viable for windows
people at least. Like I say I'd love to work out how to do it but
it's not just a install and it runs thing.
