Ampersand escaping in XML web output

I just renamed a file to '&.txt' (don't ask why please, I don't even
know myself :) ), and wondering how it would show up in the XML web
output (I use an XSL stylesheet similar to collabnet's), I loaded the
corresponing URL in my browser window.

Phoenix told me there was an error in the XML, and there was indeed :

    <file name="&.tex" href="&.tex"></file>
----------------^ ^

It should have been &amp; I guess ...
[ How the browser handles the escaped values is not up to Subversion ... ]

I have not tried with other to-be-escaped caracters (single and double
quotes, and so on), but I guess it is the same.

I know this is a minor bug, but I thought it'd be worth mentionning
since I have not find an existing issue mentionning that (sorry if I
missed it).

Note: I use SVN 0.21.0
