I still don't understand your existing setup, so I can't suggest how
to modify it.

Where is the mapping that says EID "e12345" is equivalent to the name
"Ramachandran, Vishwanath"? Is it a text file, a database, a
directory system? How do you access this information?

If you are known to Subversion as "e12345", how is it that
"Ramachandran, Vishwanath" appears in the log in the screenshot you
showed? How are you accomplishing this?

Do you have user-based authorization in Subversion -- certain parts
of the repository that can only be used by certain users? If so, how
are users identified in the authorization file -- by EID or by name?
