:-) Is your stomach OK yet? OK, we need Unicode-aware functions, but in
svnserve, we need ASCII-specific tests. There is no reason to support
non-ASCII in protocol items (other than the string ofcourse). But *that*
is the special case, so it is probably better to replace that with
explicit char checks.
