My best understanding is that SVN is doing exactly what a locale-aware
program ought to be doing, and MacOS X is not conforming to the
standards. Locale-aware programs are not expected to know how to read
global configuration files on every Unix-like operating system; they are
supposed to use the environment.

But presumably other tools also deal with this problem. It would be
educational to know how they do so; we should not invent our own
solution.
