When you say 'empty string' do you mean "" or do you mean NULL?
Passing "" (which Subversion refers to as an empty string) should
work. NULL is an error by the caller, and Subversion doesn't
generally attempt to catch such errors. If you feel that it should
catch NULL then I think you will find that most of the Subversion
developers disagree.
