Hm. Any particular reason? Apart from breaking the "all strings
passed to libsvn_* shall be UTF-8"-paradigm, it would mean that two
persons, one using a Latin-1 charset and one using an UTF-8 charset,
wouldn't be able to properly read each others log messages even if
they are restricting themselves to the common subset of characters.

Since there are no properties on log messages, how do you propose that
the actual character encoding for a log message be recorded?
