[feature request] ssl client-certificate auth

Message I have seen that this feature already exists in the svn client and can
be controlled via
the following directives in subversion configuration:

> ssl-client-cert-file
> ssl-client-cert-password

The access to the repository should be authenticated in a host-based way.
This would also offer the oppurtinity to evaluate key attributes on
server side for url rewrite and verify the the origin of the http-request.
We need a password option for avoiding the password request when
http-auth. I am not sure for now if the svn-client does seperate
password requests (ssl/http-auth).
For our scenario if the password is stored http-auth should use this
password. We need http-auth to get the username of the committer.

Userbased authorisation makes no sense in our environment as every
fsvs-user is also admin and therefore could fake the username / spy
passwords.
Using ssh for host-based authentication does not offer the flexibility
of apache2 which we need in this scenario.

Best Regards,
Gunnar Thielebein
