Subversion *does* accept any filename. However, each filename must be
converted to UTF8 when sent into the repository. The error you're
seeing is that your current locale is unable to interpret the filename,
and thus cannot 'recode' the filename into UTF8. You must set your
locale correctly.

The only bug here is that the error message isn't friendly to users.
In svn 1.2.0, the message is friendlier.
