The API is designed for manipulating the repository contents, and user
accounts are not part of the repository itself. You'll need to write
your own method of manipulating the security configuration files.

You're reinventing the wheel (at least a little) here. uberSVN,
CollabNet Edge, VisualSVN, and others already have this implemented.
There's also svncontrol (http://svncontrol.tigris.org/), though that
may be abandoned at this point.
