RE: NTLM lookup within hook script

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I understood it to be the case that using Apache to do path-based security would cause extreme performance problems with Subversion. Basically I thought that lookups would be done on every svn path for operations like svn log, update, and checkout, which is a dealbreaker since within a given repo we want uniform read access, and high performance. I thought this was one of the big reasons behind svnperms. Did I misunderstand?

since you're on Apache, aren't you basically trying to reinvent the wheel (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mod-auth-sspi)? <http://sourceforge.net/projects/mod-auth-sspi>
