Yes, but we should still lossily escape them as they go to the client.
People do odd things to their databases sometimes, and don't always go
through our APIs. (Yes, I know that technically that's illegal, and
not our fault, and all that. But there's no reason for Subversion to
fall on its face in that circumstance. And the lossy escaping will
have no effect if the illegal chars are not present, after all.)
