Avoid using flat files or you will be updating each of them every so
often, struggle with synchronisation and so on. Assume that you have a
directory already, either LDAP, AD, NIS whatever, you can use these to
at least authenticate your users for any protocol. To authorise your
users to repository, it's probably best to use svnperms* from
./tools/hook-scripts/ where you don't care about access protocol being used.

Anyway, this is solution #001. If anybody else could propose any other
solution, I'd be glad to compare.
