Why can't libsvn_client just call the path
normalization/de-normalization APIs for us? That's where the logic
should fundamentally go, it's the right layer after all. (That's not to
say that the command line client might need additional calls to it, but
why can't the libsvn_client APIs require the path's to be normalized.
It's not like it's going to significantly impact performance.)

I know that if libsvn_client doesn't do the work, the COM layer will.
The UI code will not have any code that cares about path style
separation issues (going into the COM layer); it has more important
things to worry about. I'm not so worried about strings coming back out
of the COM layer (esp. trace events), but having those calls there as
well sure would be nice.
