One way to do this would be to hook the authentication into something like Bugzilla. We did that at work so that both subversion and bugzilla had the same set of users with just one place to have to deal with them -- the username was a full email address for subversion. This also gives the ability to self-register, reset passwords, etc. A few changes to bugzilla would probably allow patches to point to subversion changes and allow sharing write access to branches.
