+1.

BTW, if we now start to base64 encode the paths in .svn/entries, it means that
normal human beings won't be able to read the paths. I think that would
outweigh any benefit of this feature. Even if it's 'conditional' on the
failure of the is_xml_safe() check, it's still goofy because we'd likely break
DAV clients who would choke on these names (or even more hilariously: check
them out as their base64 name??). -- justin
