 I don't think anyone else is either. The issue is about tabs (and
 newlines, although nobody mentioned it), which could have more
 practical
 relevance.

 I just wanted to make sure that this is an explicit choice

 This is an implicit choice as a concequence of storing filenames as XML
 attributes, without providing some supplemental escape mechanism.

Would storing the filenames as:

entry committed-rev=242
    committed-date=2002-11-11T05:01:37.546088Z
    url=file:///my/path
    last-author=willu
    kind=dir
    revision=242
   namemyFileName/name
/entry

have this same limitation? (i.e. is there a possible advantage to
c-mike?'s patch here?)

I assume there is a similar limitation on directory names because they
appear in the url attribute.

Be Well,

Will :-}
