As you remark, WebDAV is not a problem.
Mapping HTTPS to Basic Authentication is a function of Apache/mod_ssl. I
suggest you stick to normal Basic Authentication over HTTPS - or modify your
Apache front-end to interpret correctly the certificate contents (which are
made available by Pound). This is really an application issue.
We have had several reports of subversion working fine through Pound, so I
expect it can be done.
