same auth for svnserve and httpd ?

I'm having the following situation : my Apache server hosts Trac
(0.11.4) and USVN (0.7.2).

Trac's AccountManagerPlugin can use SVN users : it relies on
/path/to/my/repos/project/conf/passwd file (cleartext passwords).
USVN works with http-defined users in /path/to/my/repos/htpasswd and its
only usefulness is graphical (web interface) management of users/rights.

I also tried VisualSVN because I'm on Windows and it works like USVN.

I'd like to have some interface to manage SVN users. I can live without
it though, but feel better with http:// svn access, and I'd like a lot
Trac to use SVN users in addition to its own users.

If I use svnserve password file, I cannot use neither USVN nor http://
urls for svn checkouts/commits.
If I use httpd option, I loose Trac integration.

Is there a way to unify both authentification systems ? (... make apache
use svnserve cleartext passwords ? since I'm in doubt svnserve could use
md5 hashed passwords, couldn't it ?).

Thanks for your feedback,
