  I was wondering the other day if we shouldn't just do a single

     svn_stringbuf_ensure(retstr, strlen (path) * 3) + 1);
     (This is worst case -- each char is replaced by three (%XX), and
      then room for the NULL at the end)
  Or, do it the first time we find a char that needs replacing (someone
  check my math):
     svn_stringbuf_ensure(retstr, copied + strlen (path + copied) * 3) + 1);
  Anyway, just an idea.
 In apr_xml_quote_string, I coded a two-pass algorithm. One pass to count
 the special chars, do the alloc, then a second pass to make the changes. The
 neat part is that if no changes are necessary, it just returns the input
 string without an alloc/copy.

We could do the same pretty easily. The test for URI-safeness is easy
and fast, and this beats XML-encoding by just a hair on the size test
because it's a flat 1-char-to-3-chars expansion for each unsafe byte.

Wanna code it up?
