You can put your users into LDAP groups and have Apache check that the user exists in the specified group. I do this for subversion access (f14 & freeipa 1.2.2). This way I can manage everything over the freeipa webgui without resorting to external tools.

It is possible to do using LDAP tools and then setting an ACI on the container to give the user you want full control on that container.
