The reasons for not using system() still remain the same ones as before I
take it.

One other benefit of doing the unescaping ourselves, would be that it would
not depend on your system or on your shell or whatever, but we could document
it and it would work the same on all platforms svn runs on...

Anyway, I'll post my suggested patch later today.
