All parameters must be interpreted according to the locale of the
shell. This gets overwritten by the use of env. So all parameters must
use Latin1. If you'd want some option which overwrites the locale for
subsequent characters you might get into trouble. E.g., in

   svn --locale=en_US.IBM273 foo bar

the <SPACE> you see in the mail is actually a <U0080> in IBM272 which
might be no separating character in the locale and therefore svn might
be called with just one parameter (assuming that neither "foo" nor "bar"
are byte representations for a white-space character in IBM273, I
haven't checked it). You should get the idea.

If locale-encoding-specific options are needed you need to pass them
separately from the command line, e.g., in a config file.
