I think this would be a relatively safe thing to do in the config
parser. The attached patch (untested) should do it.
I'm a bit worried about the case-insensitive nature of the section and
option names. Mea culpa, I designed that interface and didn't realise at
the time that this was a mistake. Maybe we can silently change that to
case-sensitive... formally, we couldn't do this before 2.0.
Change the svn_config parser allow '[' and ']' in section names.
* subversion/libsvn_subr/config_file.c (parse_section_name):
Don't end the section name at the first ']', look for the
last ']' instead but allow only whitespace from there to
the end of the line.
