 This translates to, svn will not be able to handle files with control
 chars in their name, right?

It also means Subversion cannot handle log messages with control
characters in them. This came up because one of our CVS log messages
somehow had a Ctrl-D in it; cvs2svn happily converted this to a
Subversion log message, but we were unable to use the resulting
repository because one log message for one file resulted in bogus XML.

Why yes, I have filed a bug report on this... ;-)
