IMHO that just means that the terminal needs a different locale plus possibly
fonts and Unicode support in general.

This statement puzzles me, and I wonder whether I'm understanding how SVN
works correctly. In particular, I wonder whether the locale settings (LANG)
should matter at all to the outcome. The reason why I don't think so is that
this is a transformation from repository to some repository-independent
representation and then to another repository. I don't see where the locale
is involved, except perhaps for outputting error messages, but not in the
resulting repository or dumpfile data.
