Philip, do you lie in bed at night thinking of ways Life can get more
complicated? :-)

Perhaps we should go UTF-8 throughout -- as /etc/subversion/config
applies to multiple users who might use different native encodings, I
think UTF-8 has a better chance of being transcoded to all of those
other encodings. Are there other compelling reasons for going with
UTF-8 vs. native vs. free-form (with documentation on a per-option basis
as to its expected encoding)?
