Yuck. We expose too many implementation details as it is. Why should
ra_local (and ra_svn) convert an URI back to an IRI to to get at the
path, even though they don't require any escaping? Why should we do this
conversion in every error message that contains an URI?

I'm even on the verge of proposing we ditch XML for the entries file and
use UTF-8-encoded config files instead, as that'll avoid 99% of the
escaping problems we have in entries files now.
