Hmm. Tricky.

That will be correctly XML-escaped:

   <text>hello with XML &lt;/text&gt; markup</text>

but characters that cannot be XML-escaped (most control characters) will cause
a problem.

Thanks for the thoughts.

Perhaps I'll leave "svn blame --xml" for now and concentrate on "svn list
--xml" next.
