I think I can gather enough enthusiasm to make another merge and post
an updated patch. :-) I have fixed svnlook and svnadmin, and
verified proper operation with a file: URL containing non-ascii
characters. I haven't been able to test the http:/https: case since I
haven't had time to set up an Apache.

This locale argument is somewhat problematic, since it should in this
case presumably be used also when "desanitizing" the paths. Since
this has to be done whenever a file is opened or stated, the data flow
for this parameter would be pretty ubiquitous.
