why make it more complicated than needed?
throwing in locale handling into all this gives you more trouble than it
solves.

if everything internal to svn is utf8 why shouldnt the config files be
the same. UTF-8 isnt this new anymore. and any better editor on the
world now can save utf-8 encoding.

document the config files should be utf-8. just my 2 cents.
this would make supporting svn easier aswell.

just my 2 cents.
