URI Encoding and Windows.

I saw cmpilato's recent work on making stuff XML and URI safe, and wondered
what ever happened to that issue with checkouts and imports on Win32, where
it wouldn't let you specify a drive letter in the URL. I thought maybe we
could move the URI encoding from libsvn_ra_dav somewhere higher, so that
it is encoded before trying to determine the URL scheme. Then libsvn_ra_local
could decode it, and things should be happy right?

Mentioned it on irc to cmpilato, and he said that it was too big a change
for right now, and is only concentrating on ra_dav/mod_dav_svn.

So I wanted to accomplish a couple of things with this mail.

1) Make sure it doesn't get forgotten.
2) See if anyone knows of a reason why that won't work.
3) Put the idea into the head of anyone who wants to write a patch to do this :)
