Look at libsvn_subr/xml.c:xml_escape, Subversion currently escapes the
five characters &<>"'. In particular it doesn't escape the ^H that
Andreas used. I find it odd that Subversion "escapes" a different set
of characters from that "quoted" by apr_xml_quote_elem, but then I
don't know much about XML or UTF8.
