[PATCH] Discuss character set restrictions in book

From: Charles Bailey <bailey.charles_at_gmail.com>

Attached is a patch to Book Chapter 3 which expands one of the
sidebars to discuss how Subversion handles text and path names, and
therefore what is(n't) allowed in these types of input. I've waffled
a fair amount over where to put this -- on the one hand, I thought
it'd be good to have it in a common enough place that new users (like
me) would see it before finding problems the hard way; on the other,
it can get to be a fairly picky and/or fragmented topic. I tried to
find a middle ground. The location early in the book's "detailed"
description of Subversion seemed reasonable, rather than placing it in
introductory section, where the detail is less fine, or the developer
reference, where users might not think to look. I didn't think any of
the issues merited a full section on their own, so I tried to combine
(conflate?) them as smoothly as I could into a sidebar. The revised
version does bury the note about "/trunk" a bit, but it gets detailed
discussion in chapter 4, and the original sidebar was really just a
pointer to that discussion.

Suggestions/improvements welcome, of course.
