svn.collab.net httpd configuration: default charset

If you visit a URL like

  http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.2.0-rc1/CHANGES

you will see some UTF-8 text misrenderd as ISO-8859-1, because the
response has a header of

  Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1

Since CHANGES, like most text files in Subversion, has no
svn:mime-type, the mod_dav_svn default of "text/plain" is used. httpd
automatically adds the value of AddDefaultCharset to this mime type,
which on svn.collab.net is evidently set to the default value of
ISO-8859-1.

I suggest that AddDefaultCharset on svn.collab.net be set to UTF-8.
That could presumably be scoped to the Subversion project if desired.
