Re: Call For Votes: converting log messages to UTF-8

Changing the locale is not even what we want to do here.

Just because my log message text is in Big5, doesn't mean I don't
still want Subversion's error and other messages printed in the
dominant system locale (non-Big5).

What I was thinking of was not a --locale option, but simply an option
(long opt only, no short equiv) that says "my log message is in
encoding FOO", like this:

  --log-message-encoding=FOO

The main purpose of this is for other programs to pass the option,
though a human is perfectly free to do so.

I don't have a problem "cluttering" the long-option space. It's the
short opt space where we need to be ultra conservative.
