Related to that tricky situation -- various files on which blame is run
could have different encodings. I'd like to suggest you use functions
that you already have to transfer any encoding into UTF-8, but that
only works when you know the encoding of the file content and
Subversion does not have that information about file content, IIRC.
(And what is the receiving program to do? Does it want the original
content in whatever encoding was used, or would it prefer that
Subversion normalize the data into a single encoding?)
