[svn] Recode problem

From: Heikki Orsila <shd_at_modeemi.cs.tut.fi>

The default behaviour of SVN is very annoying: importing files often fails
for an error 'svn: Can't recode string'. The default behaviour should be
to accept _any_ filenames (zero terminated byte strings).

This problem happened yesterday when I tried to import my home
repository, and now again when I'm trying to switch our cvs repo at work
into svn. Imo, this is a barrier that slows people to switch to use svn
instead of alternatives.
