Re: ! Some Characters in Path Cause Troubles (eg in Externals)

Well (,),[,],{,} are not invalid characters in file/path names, so I
can’t imagine that they would be a problem on their own. It is
possible to import files/paths with those characters using TSVN,
VisualSVN, etc., but it is only the checkout-externals that has a
problem with them.

I’ll see if escaping them in the external works (although that should
be unnecessary since TSVN doesn’t escape them when importing or
displaying their URL or anything).
