Yes, I believe so, and also canonized for case on case-insensitive
platforms. The commandline client uses a helper function
(subversion\libsvn_subr\opt.c:svn_opt_args_to_target_array) that uses
apr_filepath_merge, svn_path_cstring_to_utf8 and svn_path_canonicalize
to convert target paths for library calls. Urls are treated slightly
differently.
