VisualSVN Server includes a PowerShell module[1] that provides a set
of cmdlets[2] for server and repository administration. You may want
to try the `Get-SvnAccessRule`[3] and `Select-SvnAccessRule`[4]
cmdlets - I guess that they can partially meet your requirements.
However, they do not consider AD user's group membership and therefore
do not display effective access for a particular user account.

Do I understand you correctly that you want a reporting tool that will
display actual effective access for AD user DOMAIN\Username
considering his group membership? How complex is the access rule
configuration in your repositories? Could you please show us an
example (run Get-SvnAccessRule and show us the output)? You can reply
me privately or contact support_at_visualsvn.com and we will examine your
case further.
