...and turn a simple error message of:

    "error: You need to URI-encode your URLs"

into a confusing one:

    "error: You might need to URI-encode some of your URLs, namely the
             ones that have a percent sign (%) in the decoded path,
             because rather than encourage proper user behavior, we
             want to cater to mindless masses."

Subversion uses URLs, folks, not filesystem paths with URL-looking
prefixes on them.
