Yes, this is a good candidate. I haven't posted about this because
Ihaven't checked if the charset parameter is valid for all mime types that
we want to support translation/diffing/merging. This is not only text/*.
If this is not the case, we could have svn:encoding, fall back on charset
of svn:mime-type and then fall back on the user's locale. But this is
mostly hand-waving; I haven't checked.
