We would certainly rather see it accomplished via a preprocessor too. I
kind of had the impression you were going to try something in that area.
It is something we can look into, but not until we have mod_dav_svn
working. If you want to provide any more hints as to how you would do
this, or possible suggest other projects that might have used a technique
like it, that would be great. At this point, about all we understand is
that you think this could be done with a pre-processor.

If we did do it with a preprocessor, how do you think we would handle
strings that we wanted to let remain in the native locale? I think there
are a decent number of string that we did not escape.
