detecting charset wishlist enhancement

I imagine that the text-encoding of a file in Subversion might be
useful to other applications than just mod_dav_svn. In any case,
once the method for specifying charset in properties is ironed
out, I suggest 'svn add' detect the charset of a text/* document
when possible.

For example, UTF-16 can be inferred from the presence of an
initial zero-width non-breaking space; charset can be specified by
a "-*- encoding: foo -*-" line on the first or second line (the
Emacs format, which at least Python also supports).
