The GNOME convention says that all filenames are encoded with UTF-8.
So one always knows the character set. :)

If you disagree with this convention, Subversion could store some
information in the .svn directories about the charset used for the
filenames, so that there would be no problems when two users with
different locales (or one user using different locales or applications
with different conventions) would access the same working copy.

Also, I wonder how Subversion currently behaves when the repository
contains filenames with characters that cannot be represented with
ISO-8859-1 and the user has a locale based on ISO-8859-1. Choosing
an encoding different from the locales can solve this problem. The
user may not want or may not even be able to change his locales.
