I see. Well, if you cannot use key-login with that, then you can't restrict
users by using the 'command' directive in authorized keys files.
Maybe one could use a custom login shell that only allow execution of
certain commands, such as svnserve? A bit ugly, but this approach is used
with e.g. anoncvs on OpenBSD systems:

I still object to your claim that this was Subversion's fault
because "Security infrastructure is not Subversion's strong point."
That's just FUD.
If OpenSSH supported key-based login based on public key credentials
stored in LDAP, this would not be an issue.
