I look into that, sure.

That's right. For usual error messages I would care.
In this case I'm not sure though if it is very important to translate
the message. This is meant to help us with debugging.
Maybe we should not mark it for translation.
We'll end up asking people to set LC_ALL=C anyway if we don't recognize
the translated message (though we could probably recognize it quite
easily even if it was translated :)

The repos_id is useful information for developers trying to help users
with debugging the issue. The message only appears if a bug in Subversion
is triggered. It was an assertion before this commit for a reason.
