Didn't we ditch support for systems with non-ASCII-based execution
character sets when we introduced svn_cmdline_printf and friends? There,
we rely on apr_pvsprintf producing ASCII (and also UTF-8) numbers and
such. (With ASCII-based, I mean with ASCII as a subset, like UTF-8 or
ISO-8859-* and others. Not EBCDIC, for example.)
